Many Who Were Trapped When Pincers Closed on 
Salient Are Believed to Be Hiding in Forests 
and Small Woods — Number of Ger- 
mans Engaged Was Over 90,000. 



Enemy Officer Captured Says Hindenburg Line in 
Its Present State Is Untenable— Full Story 
Victory Is Awaited With Deepest Inter- 
est — Railway Web Is Pierced. 

(Reuter's)— When the St. Mihiel operation began there were 
from 90,000 to 100,000 Germans inside the salient. They 
escaped at the rate of 1 ,000 hourly, but the pincers closed and 
trapped a hitherto unknown number. 

the 13,300 already taken prisoners does not include, of 
course, the bulk of those believed to be trapped in the salient. 

French Number Unknown 

FRONT, Sept. 14. — The total number of prisoners taken up 
to date by the Americans, officially given as 1 3,300, represents 
only those tallied at the pens. Those taken by the French 
have not been totalled, while it is believed many "Germans 
remain hidden in the forests and small woods within the 
pouch, the mouth of which was closed when the two forces 
made a junction at Vigneulles 

Hard fighting has taken place in 
the quarries northeast of Fey-en- 
Haye, where the Germans had placed 
one big tun and many machine guns 
In a well defended position. 

Additional Austrian prisoners have 
been taken; native civilians say they 
came in only a few days ago. 

Artillery fire and gas shells were 
sent against certain American posi- 
tions during the night, but they did 
little damage. The Americans are 
organizing their newly taken posi- 
tions rapidly and are pushing for- 
ward exploitation parties. Prisoners 
and supplies are being collected, and 
roads are being constructed in No 
Man's Land. Much booty and am- 
munition have fallen to the Franco- 
American Allies. Throughout the 
night ajid^easj* _todjjr p * n ™**\

Hindenburg Line Untenable 

Prisoners made conflicting state- 
ment* respecting Oerman prepared- 
ness for an attack In this sector. 
Some 4ay It was unexpected; others 
declare they had advance informa- 
tion of the hour and place of the at- 
tack. The post's command was be- 
ing moved when the attack began 
and therefore was caught unawares 
In the barrage. This apparently ex- 
plains the light counter-artillery Are 
Thursday morning. 

A Oerman prisoner officer Is quot- 
ed as saying: "The Hindenburg lln* 
In Its present state Is untenable." 

Among the war materials captured 
was a long train of box cars con- 
taining a complete equipment of gas 
projectors, and this may have had 
a bearing on the failure of the Ger- 
mans to carry out a gas attack short- 
ly before the American began their 
operations. It Is known that the 
Germans planned such an attack at 
one point, but a prisoner said that 
the equipment was delayed and It 
was decided to postpone the at- 

London Press Comment 

LONDON. Sept. 14. — Chief place Is 
given again In this morning's London 
newspapers to the American achieve- 
ments In the St. Mihiel sector. Both 
In the news snd the editorial col- 
umns heavy tributes are given to the 
thoroughness with which the opera- 
tion was completed, a thoroughness 
which Is regarded as showing that 
General Pershing and his staff made 
preparations beforehand and used 
great ear* at the same time. 

No surprise is Implied that the 
Americans should have succeeded so 
well. On the contrary, the news- 
papers concur that what happened 
was only what might have been ex- 
pected from the lighting qualities the 
Americans displayed when they 
fought aa units under French and 
British commands. Nothing like a 
flrst hand technical account of the 
flattening of the salient had reached 
London up to this morning, and such 
Inadequate detailed stories as are at 
hand do not carry the operations 
Turther than Thursday evening. 

The Dally Telegraph, after con- 
gratulating the Americana on their 
"feat of arms — a real triumph ac- 
complished in masterly style." Bays: 

•The foil story will be awaited 
with the deepest Interest. It seems 
certain that the great majority of 
Oerman troop* holding the salient 
were cut off by the ranldlty of the 
American advance and that the oppo- 
sition on the other side of the wedge 
collapsed on the second morning. It 
will be a great tale when It Is told.

Ing It they have forced the Ger- 
mans to concentrate for its defence. 
While the stroke menaces the ene- 
my's communications it opens the 
way for other American attacks on 
a still larger scale. The enemy also 
has lost the equivalent of two div- 
isions In prisoners, killed and wound- 

The Dally Chronicle says: "G«i. 
Pershing's brave troops deserve con- 
gratulations on their very skillful 
and efficient piece of work. The 
United States may well be proud of 
the manner in which this young 
army comported Itself in the flrst 
Independent offensive." 

The Times records the belief that 
the final return of prisoners will con- 
judgrably exceed, the jauaaber given 
in the. official statement, and says: 
New Factor In War 

"For all the Allied nations the 
deep interest In the American vic- 
tory lies not so much in Its results, 
which are substantial and valuable, 
but In the fact that a great American 
force has gone Into battle acting 
separately. The '■ ••< sun nation now 
will begin to r< ■ it never has 

yet done; the <>\ ming and de- 

cisive character ni the new factor 
which is emerging in the war. 

"More was destroyed at St. Mi- 
hiel than a German salient. General 
Pershing shattered at a blow the 
monstrous web of lies which sustain- 
ed the pretence that the Immense 
weight and almost Illimitable re- 
sources of the United States would 
be of little or no account on the 
European field of battle. He has 
shown that the Americans are as 
quick and apt to learn the art of 
war as they have been to develop the 
pursuits of peace." 


Reports of Desperate Condi- 
tions in Russia Confirmed — 
Fate of British Consul-Gen- 
eral Is Unknown, 

LONDON. Sept. 14. — The Govern- 
ment Is still without news from Rob- 
ert H. Lockhart. British Consul- 
General In Moscow, and the other 
British subjects held prisoner In 
Russia, but Indirect negotiations for 
thslr release are continuing. 

The latest Information In official 
quarters confirms the reports of the 
desperate conditions in Russia, Indi- 
cating the breakup of the Bolshe- 
vik! regime. Premier Lenlne and 
War Minister Trotsky, It, Is declared, 
made all preparations a month ago 
to escape to Switzerland. 

There Is still no direct news of 
the fate of the former Km press and 
her family. The Swedish Folkets 
Dagbladet. however, says that For- 
eign Minister Tchitcherln.. has denied 
the reported murders. 


Enemy Newspaper Admits American 

Blow Resulted la German Losses 

In Prisoners and Guns 

AMSTERDAM, Sept. 14.— The Ger- 
man newspapers are attempting to 
minimize the advance of the Ameri- 
cans at St. Mihiel. but the Berlin cor- 
respondent of The Cologne Volks Zei- 
tung admits that "it is true the Amer- 
ican attack was marked by certain 
losses in prisoners and some guns on 
our part." The correspondent adds 

"Even 'if an attack on our position 
at the Chemin des Dames should suc- 
ceed or if the supreme army command 
should give up this area for other 
reasons, this would no longer have 
any significance for the strategical 
position, even If It were a matter of 
an area which has been bo hotly fought 
over as the Chemin des Dames."

This announcement was made in 
the official communication from the 
War Office tonight. 

French troops began a new attack 
at dawn this morning on both sides of 
the Ailette River and between the 
river Aisne and the Vesle River. 

The attack of the French forces in 
the direction of the forest of Coucy at 
the southern end of St. Oobaln Massif 
was progressing satisfactorily this 

South of the Ailette River the 
French captured Mont Des Singes and 
the villages of Allemant and Sancy. 

The French also reached the edge 
of the town of Vallly on the Aisne. 

The French advanced for a distance 
of between one and two miles on an 
eleven-mile front. 

The German defence against the 
French advancing on the Ailette River 
front appeared to have been weak, al- 
though the front line was strongly 
held. The Oerman prisoners say they 
had orders to hold at all costs.

Mr, George Ford Seriously, and 
PoesiWy -fatally, -Injured, 
When His Gun Mysteriously 
Discharges at Goldstream, 

The first shooting accident of the 
hunting season, one that will In all 
likelihood result fatally, occurred last 
night shortly before 7 o'clock, when 
Mr. George Ford, of Ruby 8treet, was 
shot In the right side while at camp 
near Goldstream. He is now lying at 
St. Joseph's Hospital so seriously In- 
jured that but little hope is enter- 
tained that he will survive. 

According to Mr. Ford's own state- 
ment after the shooting to his hunting 
companion, Mr. Alan Pynn, of 59 Os- 
wego Street, he must have kicked his 
shotgun with his foot, thereby caus- 
ing the weapon to go off. At the time 
the two huntsmen had just returned 
to their camp about 300 yards from 
the Ooldstream Road and not far from 
the hotel. They went out on Friday 
night so as to be on the ground early 
on the opening day of the season. They 
hunted all day and had just got back 
to their camp. Pynn at the time of 
the accident was some distance away 
from his companion attending to 
some camp details when he heard the 
report of the gun. At first he thought 
Ford was taking a shot at a bird, but 
immediately after the report he heard 
the latter call out, "Oh, Al, I am shot." 

Pym ran over to where the 
Injured man was lying writhing 
on the ground, his clothing 
stained with blood which flow- 
ed from the wound In his side. 
Pynn promptly realised that his friend 
was badly injured, and. binding up 
the wound as best he could, carried 
Ford down to the Goldstream Road, 
where he left him while he ran to the 
hotel to Inquire If he could secure a 
motor car. He was told that Mr. J. 
P. Shaw, a rancher nearby, had a car, 
which he soon secured. Mr. Shaw of- 
fering to drive the injured man Into 
the city, a quick trip to the hospital 
being made. There Dr. R. L, Fraser 
gave medical attention. 

Mr. Ford retained consciousness 
throughout the trip, to the hospital. 
He explained that apparently In kick- 
ing the gun accidentally one barrel 
was discharged, the recoil moving 
the weapon in such a way that the 
second barrel was discharged, and It 
was the charge, he thought, from this 
second chamber that struck him. Pynn 
doea not recollect hearing two shots. 

The injured man and Mr. Pynn 
have known one another for about 
seven years and have frequently gone 
together on hunting expeditions. He 
was, said Mr. Pynn last night, an ex- 
perienced hunter, careful In handling 
firearms, and what could be termed a 
"safe man" in the field. 

Mr. Ford la about SO years of age. 
married and the father of two small 
children. He la a ballermaker by

DETROIT, Mich., Sept. 14.— Plana 
for the enrolment in Detroit of 20,000 
Russians with Bolshevikl tendencies 
for the purpose of harassing the Gov- 
ernment's war programme and start- 
ing countrywide revolution haa been 
revealed by confessions of three Rus- 
sians arrested with five others on Fri- 
day night at a Russian boarding house, 
according to Federal officials tonight. 
An Austrian now in custody who 
came here from Chicago, was named 
in* the confession as leader of the plot, 
it was stated. 

Receipts found In the possession of 
some of the men show payments made 
to Bolshevikl banks in Russia. 



PARIS. 8ept. 14. — Herr Schrlck. 
chief of the German espionage system 
in Switzerland, has been arrested at

nitions factory in Neufchatel district 
were found In Schrick's possession, the 
dispatch said. 


Full Bread Ration to Be Re- 
stored in Germany, but 
Otherwise Food Supply Is 
Poor — Potato Crop Worse, 

AMSTERDAM. Sept. 14. — Herr 
von Waldow, president of the Ger- 
man food regulation board, speaking 
at a reception to the leaders of Ger- 
man trades unions, said he regretted 
the latenens of the harvest, and that 
there were no sharper means than 
were at present used to get more 

The corn crop, von Walden said, 
was only 13 per cent better than that 
of last year, and the potato crop 
probably was worse. 

The provisioning .of Industries, he 
added, would improve from October 
1. A full bread ration certainly 
would be restored, but he declared he 
could not hold out any prospect for 
an Increase In the potato ration as 
unfavorable weather had damaged 
the crop. 

The meatless week must be con- 
tinued, In order not to endanger the 
milk and fat supply. Unfortunately 
he was unable to hold out any pros- 
pect of an Improvement in the food 
supply, but he was positive that it 
wo u ld -not get worse. 

Herr Lenlen, a member of the 
Reichstag, Who was one of the de- 
putation, replying to Herr von Wal- 
dow, said that In view of the hope- 
lesH information he gave regarding 
the food supply the workers could 
not continue to work the number of 
hours they now are working.

Spies Set to Find Out Secrets of Entente Embassies 

— Washington Is in Possession of Full Record 

of Motive Power of Drama of 

Shame and Degradation. 

WASHINGTON, Sept. 14. — Proofs removing any doubt that 
l.enine and Trotzky, the Bolshevikl leaders, are paid German agents — 
if indeed any doubts remain — are laid before the world today by the 
United States Government in the first instalment of an amazing series 
of official documents disclosed through the committee on public 

Secured in Russia by American agents, these documents not only 
show how the German Government, through its Imperial Bank, paid 
its gold to Lenine, Trotzky and their immediate associates to betray 
Russia into deserting the Allies 1 , but give added proofs, if any be 
necessary, that Germany had perfected her plans for a war of world 
conquest long before the assassinations at Sarajevo, which, as the 
world is now convinced, conveniently furnished her pretext. 

Mobilizing Destruction 

These documents further show that before the world war was 
four months old, and more than two years before the United States 
was drawn into it, Germany already was setting afoot her plans to 
"mobilize destructive agents and observers" to cause explosions, 
strikes and outrages in this country and planned the employment of 
"anarchists and escaped criminals" for the purpose. 

Almost ranking in their sensational nature with the notorious 
Zimmermann note proposing war by Mexico and Japan upon the 
United States, which was first given to the world through the Asso- 
ciated Press, these documents lay bare a new strata of Prussian 
intrigue, a new view of the workings of kultur, to disrupt the Allies 
standing between the world and Kaiserism. 

They disclose a new story of hu«

NEW YORK. Sept. 14. — John 
Reed, under Indictment as one of the

against the sending of American 
troops into Siberia and denounced 
Oreat Britain as having instigated the 
shooting of Nikolai Lenlne. the Bol- 
shevikl Premier. He was held In 
$5,000 bonds. 

Reed promised that he would make 
no more speeches pending trial on the 
newest charge. 


Increase in Cost of Living 
Leads to Far-Reaching Gov- 
ernment Investigation — All 
Salaries Doubled, 

TOKIO, Sept. 14. — The astounding 
increase In the cost of living con- 
tinues to affect all aspects of life 
and is generally attributed to the 
overwhelming excess of exports. The 
Government has decided to meet the 
grave economic problem by Increas- 
ing all salaries 50 per cent and pri- 
vate employers are following the 
Government's lead. 

The Government has Inaugurated 
a far-reaching Investigation Into 
economic, labor and social prob- 
lems. Having adopted all practical 
measures of relief, the Impression 
generally Is that the Cabinet will 
soon resign and this Is expected fur- 
ther to relieve the Internal situa- 

Representative leaders and the 
conservative newspapers emphasize 
their belief that Japan, affected by 
the current of world thought, haa 
entered a new era of development; 
that the masses of the people are 
beginning to perceive their power, 
and that all questions must be faced 
and met squarely to avoid further

LONDON. Sept. 14. — King George lias sent a message of congratulation 
to President Wilson on the victory won by General Pershing in the St. Mihiel 

The King's message read: 

"On behalf of the British Empire I heartily congratulate yon on the bril- 
liant accomplishment of the American and Allied troops under the leadership' 
of General Pershing in the St. Mihiel salient. 

"The far-reaching results secured by these successful operations, which 
have marked the active intervention of the American Army on a great scale 
under its own administration, are the happiest augury for the complete, and 
I hope, not far distant triumph of the Allied cause." 

Premier Lloyd George haa sent the following message from Manchester 
to General Pershing at the American front: 

"I desire to offer to yon and yomt brave armies heartiest

by the Committee of Public Informa- 

Paid Agents of Germany 

Not only does the disclosures prove 
that Lenlne, Trotsky, and their band 
are paid Oerman agents; they show 
that th« Bolshevikl revolution which 
threw Russia into an orgy of murder 
and excesses such aa tba world haa 
seldom seen actually waa arranged by 
the German general staff. They show 
that the paid agents of Germany be- 
trayed Russia at the Brest- Lltovsk 
"peace" conference; how Oerman 
staff officers secretly have been re- 
ceived by the Bolshevikl aa military 
advisers; how they have acted as 
spies upon the embassies of the na- 
tions with which Russia was allied or 
at peace; how they have effectually 
directed the Bolshevikl foreign, do- 
mestic, and economic policy wholly 
In the Interest of Germany and the 
shame and degradation of Russia. 

They show how a picked Oerman 
commander was detailed to "defend" 
Petrograd against the Oerman army 
and an extent of Oerman Intrigue 
and domination almost beyond the 
realm of imagination. 

Damning Record 

Original of documents, photographs 
of originals and typewritten circulars, 
some of them marked "Very Secret" 
or "Private," and many of them 
bearing the annotations of the Bol- 
shevikl leaders themselves; some of 
them containing references to "Com- 
rade Trotsky" or Comrade Lenlne, 
comprise* the damning record. 

Some of the originals, it Is shown, 
although deposited In the secret ar- 
chives of the Bolshevikl are required 
to be returned later to representa- 
tives of the Oerman General Staff In 
Petrograd that they might be des- 
troyed. But evidence of them re- 
mained In the fabric of roguery, and 
Into the vacancies they fit perfectly. 

The Bolshevikl leaders themselves 
Informed their "comrades" that the 
German Government had required 
the return of the order of the Oerman 
Imperial Bank depositing fifty mil- 
lion gold roubles In a Stockholm 
bank for Lenlne and Trotsky, and 
that at the same time the accounts of 
the bank had been "audited" to con- 
ceal the payments.

1115 Government Street 

VANCOUVER, B. C.. Sept. 14.— 
Two Ut i ul to, which may provide m- 
t«r*«Mng possibilities, have been 
•Urted in the local courts by Baron 
Eogene da Schelklng, new r— Idlng- 
in Vancouver, aaid to be a member of 
the RuHlan nobility, and who for 
eome time paet has been a popular 
ngure in Vancouver society. 

The defendant in one -of the attita 
la General Peter Ivanovitch Ba l l n a k y, 
a prominent member of the Ruemian 
colony, and the defendant to the 
other la Inspector John I* Zurbriek, 
chief of the U. 8. Immigration Serv- 
ice in this Province. 

Both of the actions are for dam- 
ages for alleged libel and slander and 
both hinge upon a story which Gen- 
eral Ballnaky la said to have told to 
Inspector Zurbriek, who in turn is 
■aid to have told it to two Vancouver 

Statement of Claim 

The story, according to the plain- 
tiff's statement-of-claim filed in the 
Zurbriek case is as follows, in the 
words of the document filed in court: 

"That the plaintiff (De Schelking-) 
while in the diplomatic service of 
the former Imperial Russian Govern- 
ment, and when first secretary to the 
Russian Embassy in Berlin, embez- 
zled or stole from his superior offi- 
cer, Count Osten-Sacken, the sum of 
72,000 roubles, and as a consequence 
thereof was dismissed from the dip- 
lomatic service of said Imperial Rus- 
sian Government. 

"That the plaintiff was and Is a 
German agent In the employment of 
the Government of Germany, and 
that the plaintiff's mission to Can- 
ada and the United States is to spread 
Insidious propaganda in the Interests 
of the German Government with a 
view to an early peace between the 
German Government and the Allies of 
England, meaning thereby that the 
plaintiff was and Is a German spy 
and desires to promote terms of 
peace favorable to Germany and un- 
favorable to England and the Al- 
lies of England." 

All this Is declared by the plain- 
tiff to be false and malicious. 
"Suicide of Monarchies" 

In the suit against General Balln- 
aky. a new angle is given to the case. 
Baron de Schelking claims that in his 
occupation as a Journalist and author 
he has written a book called "The 
Suicide of Monarchies" which he is 
about to produce, and that he had 
entered into arrangements with The 
New York Times and with a local 
syndicate of newspapers to write a 
series of articles dealing with the 
European situation. As a result of 
the alleged communication from 
Ballnsky to Inspector Zurbriek. which 
is said' to have been made on July 
22, de Schelking says that he has 
been unable to secure the acceptance 
of the articles he had proposed writ- 
ing for The itfew York Times and the 
syndicate In this city. He alleges 
also that the production and sale of 
"The Suicide of Monarchies" has 
been hindered. 



Bolsheviki Severely Punished 
by Japanese Refuse to Rally 
—Are Short of Ammunition 
and Provisions, 

VLADIVOSTOK. Sept. 14. — A 
stampede of the Magyar and Bolshe- 
viki forces following desertion of a 
thousand Russians recruited st the 
point of the bayonet is related' in a 
dispatch from TIkhmenv on the west 
bank of the Ussurl River 30 miles 
east of Lake Khanka. 

After the battle of Kraevski on 
August 21 the Bolsheviki army of 
t.000 or 12.000 men, under Colonel 
Sakovitch, a former Russian Imperial 
army officer, retreated across the 
Ussurl River In the greatest disorder. 
They were puzzled by the character 
of the attacking forces. The Magyar 
leaders sought to convince the Bol- 
sheviki troops that the enemy forces 
were General Semenoff'a Cossacks 
disguised as Japanese. 

The Bolsheviki, however, already 
had begun to distrust the Magyar 
leadership, and, disheartened by the 
severe punishment they had received 
at the hands of the Japanese, refused 
to rally. They also were short of am- 
munition and provisions. The Bol- 
sheviki retreat soon became a race 
toward Khabarovsk about 22 5 miles 
north of Tlkhmenev. 

An Entente agent who visited Ka- 
barovek and who returned to Tlkh- 
menev on September S, said there 
were only 3.000 Magyar and Bolshe- 
viki troops at the former place.

Soviet Government Does Not 
Recognize International Law 
—Threats Made by Bolshe- 
vist Press. 

STOCKHOLM. Friday, Sept. 14.— 
Events in Russia which Immediately 
preceded the aurrender ef Entente 
Allied interests In Soviet Russia to 
the ministers of neutral countries 
were resorted chiefly through Bolshe- 
viki and German mediums. The En- 
tente consuls were without communi- 
cation and their eide waa not fully 
atated during the crucial daya of 
early August, when conditions be- 
came ao unsettled that they decided 
it waa necessary to place the lives 
and property of their nationals un- 
der the protection of neutrals. The 
real break began on July 29. when 
Premier Lenlne declared in a Moscow 

"We are at war with the Anglo- 
French Imperialists." 

Posters reiterating similar state- 
ments were displayed all over Mos- 
cow and great uneasiness was felt 
by all the Entente citizens because 
of the threats made In the Bolsheviki 

The Entente Consuls asked Foreign 
Minister Tchitcherln If the Soviet 
Government regarded itself at war 
with the Entente Allies and told him 
that Premier Lenine's statement 
must necessarily be regarded as a 
declaration of war unless it was 
officially denied. After considerable 
delay Tchitcherln replied: 

"The Soviet Government is not 
making war on the peoples of tu« 
Allied countries and does not recog- 
nize International law." 
200 Arrests 

Russian. French, and British con- 
suls and their staffs and many mem- 
bers of the military missions of the 
two countries were arrested on Aug. 
6, with about 200 British and French 
civilians, including many women. On 
August 7 the consuls and other offi- 
cials were released, but the citizens 
were held. 

Being unable to communicate with 
their home government, and being 
uncertain of their freedom, the En- 
tente consuls immediately turned 
their affairs to the representatives of 
neutral countries, and asked for their 
passports. Later they also asked per- 
mission for tbeir nationals to leave. 
In the meantime some Englishmen 
and Frenchmen were released and 
others were arrested. 

Minister Tchitcherln then agreed 
to let the Entente officials and citi- 
zens depart If Maxim Lltvlnoff, the 
Bolsheviki representative In London 
was permitted to leave England, but 
he delayed and proposed new condi- 
tions repeatedly. Finally he refused 
flatly to permit the British and ' 
French to go, notwithstanding the 
insistence of the neutral diplomats. 

Not more than fifty native born 
Americans are left in Soviet Russia. 
Most of these have resided there for 
many years, and are unwilling to 
leave the country. The Americans 
were not ordered out by Dewltt C. 
Poole, the American consul general, 
but were given an opportunity to

hortage of Labo r Cause of 
Wanii. Production in Brit- 
ain—Miners May Be With- 
drawn From Front, 

LONDON, Sept. 14.— A shortage of 
labor by the withdrawal of large num- 
ber* of skilled miners for the army la 
given as a cause for the decline In 
the output of coal by a correspondent 
of the Press Association who has been 
touring the coal fields Investigating 
the coal shortage. 

The secretary of the Northumber- 
land Miners' Association In a review 
stated that owing to the shortage of 
labor the equipment of mines was In 
need of repair, making It difficult to 
get coal to the surface. Mine man- 
agers, he said, are doing their best 
to overcome the difficulties, but all 
of their expedients to Increase pro- 
duction will only have an Infinitely 
small effect. The need of the hour, 
the secretary declared, is more men 
and until they are available the short- 
age will continue. fr1 

Reuter's, Limited, learns that In or- 
der to meet the growing demands of 
coal for the army, navy and muni- 
tions factories and for the Allies, ar- 
rangements have been made for the 
return to the mines of all coal miners 
except those of the highest physical 
categories. A scheme is also under 
consideration to release as many 
miners as can be spared from the

* Foreign Mlnlater; g*»n the German 
Emperor and the Crown Prince, hay* 
all been mak lag; peace apeechee, die-' 
tated aolely by tbelr fear of Impending 
defeat. Yeeterday the Aoetro-Hun- 
garian Government" formally Invited 
all belligerent countries to enter Into 
non-binding dtscuaalons with a view 
to bringing about peace.. The 
propaganda la in full swing and 
each -successive victory of the 
Allies from now on will give It . a 
fresh Impetus. No doubt the Scan- 
dinavian nations will be Influenced to 
use their good offices with the Entente 
Powers to endeavor to negotiate a 
basis ' for peace pourparlers. This 
propaganda Is necessary for two rea- 

' koiih. Germany wants peace because 
her rulers realize at last, and her peo- 
ple know, too, that they cannot defeat 
the Allied forces. Both Von Hlnden- 
burg and Von LudendorIT have" 
reached this, conclusion. It was flrst 
voiced by Dr. vdn Kuehlmann, the 
former Foreign Secretary, but as the 
time was not ripe to make the con- 
fession he 'was qiiletly dropped from 
office. Now, however, the German 
Government can ho longer withhold 
the truth from the people, and so the, 
greatest peace offensive of the war has 
been launched. ' 

The "second reaajpn for the propa- 
ganda ,t», the Uermftn Government's 
desire — in the event of the Allies turn- 
ing a de*£ ear to the peace -offensive — 
to sthUfrt the determination of the 
Gernjah people lo right a defensive 
war hi the hope of a .draw being the 
outcome, it will be noted tb* burden 
of the latest pea«« ^'peaches has been 
no annexation* in thie West and the 
-etroceselon o( K licrmany'* colonial 
empire. Prussian :»ni has made its 
throw for world empire and lost; it 
now seeks ' to restore the status quo 
In the West, 'as by doing so time would 
. be gained to work out the policy of 
penetration In the Cast. The Allied 
victories in the West have hardly 
caused (he enemy so much disquietude 
as the fashiofi inteVhlcli events In Rus- 
sia are shaping. Germany sees the 
dream of an Oriental empire fading 
away and she knows if the war is 
prolonged she must face again a bat- 
tle line in Russia and eventually lose 
her conquests from the Baltic to the 
Black Sea. Allied Intervention in 
. Siberia and the Murmansk region 
constitutes an epoch in the war. In 
jffect It li.^ie first definite step to- 
wards redressing the balance of power 
tn the Bast. Germany has become 
thoroughly alarmed ever the menace 
which threatens to obliterate her In- 
fluence In. conquered Russia. • That is 
'he second, reason why she IS prepared 
immediately to sacrifice what she 
hjttlda in the -West. 
JWhat a change Is rapidly coming 
oyer the scene. The fortunes of war 
have ebbed and flowed during the four 
fateful years of its prosecution, but 
never • till these declining Summer 
days of 1911 has the tide Anally and 
Irrevocably set as the floodtlde of an. 
Allied victory. The signs of the times 
can be read as unmistakably in the 
utterance* of German and Auatrian 
leaders as In the gathering power and 
th>tthunderous blows of the Allied 
armies. And now, the question before 
'jjbjr** Peojsles of trie world, and one 
tljejf-wtll dominate *mjr thoughts with 
trowing Intensity In the days to oome, 
la the extent of the victory that Is to 
,,•* won. What must be guarded 
against above all else Is any disposi- 
tion towards a, weakening of resolu- 
tion. We know, at the coet of mll-

A. E. TODD. Mayor. 

City Hall. Victoria. B. C. Sept. 14, 


Sir Robert Borden has announced 
that the question of the high cost of 
living is to be considered by the Gov- 
ernment, and we hope, now he has 
returned to Ottawa, there will be 
speedy action taken In the direction of 
j government control of prices. There 
Is a High Cost of Living Commissioner 
in connection with our governmental 
system, but the people do not know 
what he is doing beyond gathering 
statistics of which no use is made. 
The trouble in the campaign to arouse 
official interest In the country's great- 
est internal problem has been the 
apathy of public organizations re- 
specting prices. Our municipal coun- 
cils have been the most glaring exam- 
ple of this. If there Is one authority 
above all others that comes close to 
the domestic life of the citizen it Is the 
municipal government, yet no body has 
shown such Indifference to the con- 
tinually growing cost of living, with 
the consequent profiteering that pre- 

Government Ownership 

Sir, — A campaign of suggestion haa. 
been- Inaugurated throughout Canada 
with marked activity in Ontario and 
the Middle West, having for It* ob- 
ject the assumption by the Govern- 
ment of the management of the Can- 
adian Pacific Railway system. 8uch 
action can be Justified upon one 
ground only: That Government man- 
agement of the system would give 
the Empire, in this tight for exist- 
ence, better service than the Empire 
has received from the C. P. R. Com- 
pany, while under the guidance and 
direction of Baron Shaughnessy of 
Ashford and Montreal. When the 
history of the Great War is written, 
upon-' the paxes blazoned with vic- 
tory, the services of Canada to the 
Empire will Htand out in brilliant re- 
lief, but, second only to those ser- 
vices, will appear the work done by 
the Canadian Pacific Railway. Not 
only are that railroad and Its 
branches the>__njaln arteries through 
which have Mowed the life and en- 
ergy of Canada to the battlefields 
of Europe, but they have been one 
of the connecting links which Joined 
the heart of the Empire to the mem- 
bers overseas — to Asia and the South- 
ern Hemisphere. To Jeopardize the 
safety of an institution whose effici- 
ency is vital to the security of the 
Empire, at a time when the lite of 
the Empire is menaced by a ruth- 
less foe, is of the blackest treason. 
During the continuance of the war. 
a change of management, from the 
skilled to the untried, must place 
efficiency In jeopardy. It speaks 111 
then of the patriotism of that On- 
tario camarilla of financial interests, 
who mouthing patriotism and love 
of the public weal, seek In Govern- 
ment ownership of the C. P. R. an 
opportunity for personal gain, even 
(hough that gain be at the expense 
of the Empire.

Army Hut Fund 

Sir. — Permit me space to briefly 
point out a few features of the Knight* 
of Columbus Army Hut Fund Drive, 
which will take place throughout the 
Dominion of Canada, commencing 
Monday, September 16 to September 
IS. The funds collected will be used 
to give comforts of the soldier* irre- 
spective of creed. The slogan Is 
"Every Man In Khaki Welcome.''' 

The need of Army Huts is very 
pressing and the work has the en- 
dorsement of Generals Currie and 
Turner. HI* Excellency the Duke of 
Devonshire, Governor-General of Can- 
ada i* honorary patron. Mr. M. J. 
Haney. a prominent financial man of 
Toronto la treasurer of the fund. 

In the erection of the huts the 
Knight* of Columbus are supplement- 
ing the great work don* by the Y.M. 
C.A., and helping to make it possible 
for the soldier* to enjoy more com- 
forts than they have in the past. Last 
year the work was carried on with 
money raised by personal subscription. 
but the demand for huts is so great 
that it was decided to make a Do- 
minion-wide appeal, and we do so with 
every hope of success. 

The slogan adopted by the Knights 
of Columbus in the United States, 
"Everybody Welcome and Everything 
Free" has brought them the esteem 
and approval of all classes of people, 
and this appeal made for the first time 
to the Canadian people Is made with 
every assurance of success.

If we take the case of our awn City 
Council, we find that during the past 
four years it has done nothing worth 
while, directed in any way, either by 
actual action or by representations 
to the Federal authorities, to reduce 
the price of a single commodity. Our 
Council spend* much time dealing 
with mattera whlcl. ahould be handled 
by Uie heads of civic departments, and 
It discusses subjects that are alto- 
gether outside its municipal province, 
while It might be engaged In expend- 
ing It* wisdom on the one question 
that is agitating the public mind 
above all other*. It is futile to" say 
It has no authority lh\ the matter. It 
has the power to put before the Fed- 
eral Government the feeling of the 
people of Victoria. It can awaken 
our local food committee Into making 
•the strongest possible representations 
to the Canada Food Board. It can 
give expression In an authoritative 
way to what is in the minds of every- 
one. That It ha* not done all these 
thing* shows It Is remiss in Its duties, 
one of which is to safeguard civic 
welfare. Nothing i* hurting the lat- 
ter *0 much as the continuous Increase 
in price* for the necessaries of life. 

We admit that other municipal 
council* are almost equally apathetic 
and that board* of trade have ahown 
no Initiative In the matter. It would 
seem aa If they arc not Interested In 
profiteering from the consumer*' 
standpoint. As far as our loc^l situa- 
tion 1* concerned the apathy Is all the 
more remarkable In view of th* 
amount of publicity given the subject 
In thl* city. What our Mayor and

Potato Production 

Sir. — After reading the account In 
today's issue, of the phenomenal 
yield of potatoes obtained by Mr. 
Handley of Dallas Road. I am keen 
to know how It was done. You make 
some of us poor amateur potato 
enthusiasts feel rather sorry for our- 
selves! 1 for one, thought 1 wa* doing 
fine with my little crop this year, 
but I'm not *o sure about It now. 
"One hill of potatoes weighing twelve 
and one-halt, pounds," my! I wish 
I had been at the digging with my 
camera! Tell us how you do It, Mr. 

The best hill I dug this year 
weighed live pounds and six ounces. 
The best row 13 yards long produced 
130 pounds of spuds, and my total 
yield of all sizes for 240 square yards 
of garden amounted to 1200 pounds. 
That Is about twelve tons to the acre. 
I would like to know how many tons 
per acre Mr. Handley has raised? 
I saw a crop In the Yakima valley 
some time ago which turned out 
fifteen tons per acre field cultivation, 
and I have heard of 25 tons per 
acre In Colerado, and 20 tons In 

To come hack to the practical point ■ 
folks in Victoria who grow potatoes 
want to know how to seaure good 
results. It Is very evident to any 
ordinary observer that most of those 
who go to the trouble and expense of 
planting potatoes get a very poor 
out-turn. A few evenings ago.l saw 
a gentleman digging his potatoes on 
a vacant lot and he did not lift a 
bucketfull to a row the whole length 
of the lot. That wa* sufficiently 
discouraging one would say. Some- 
thing wrong there evidently. Now, I 
would like to have some of those 
successful growers relate their ex- 
perience* for the instruction and 
encouragement of their humble 
brethren of the potato cult. I am 
sure air! many of us will sit around 
and listen while they talk.

The Coat of Fish 

8lr.— I have had a good deal to say 
on this subject the last few months, 
because I have had a long experience 
in eating fish in Victoria, when it was 
not a luxury, as at present. I have 
complained of Its coat, and still do. 
of certain kinds, but there Is less 
cause now for It Is not necessary to 
buy salmon and halibut when you 
can get pilchards and gray fish; 
Which to my mind are fully equal to 
the fish named, and atjea* than half 
their coat. They have been only 
lately Introduced, and I have given 
them a fair trial., and pronounced 
them good, and recommend the gray 
fish for Its delicate flavor and the 
pilchard for Its rich flavor, and once 
eaten will be eaten again, and again. 
What a strange thing they should 
only now have been brought to light, 
but better late than never, and In 
order to better Introduce them 
would advise fishmongers to dispense 
smell samples tp enquirer*.

The High Cost of Living 

Sir, — It seems to me there i.s only 
one way to keep our business und 
working population .at a medium 
steadiness and contentment, and stop 
strikes and walk-outs, and that way 
is to get a Food Controller who 
would be allowed to ' control com- 
modities of all kinds. 

I have been reading several of 
your leading articles within the last 
week or so, and you get very close 
to the point, but you know, as most 
of us do, that it is up to the Union 
Government to control, and they can 
control If they so wish and are will- 
ing to do a little sacrificing. But I 
suppose most, of our members of 
Parliament and Senators arc Inter- 
ested in the companies that control 
the necessities of life and the wants 
of the people, and they hate to miss 
the opportunity of getting rich — 
even at m time like this when we 
are sacrificing the best blood of our 
Empire at a few dollars a month 
per man while the trucker and 
trader get rich. Why should we not 
all sacrifice something, as well as 
our men In the trenches and their 
dependents at home? 

Surely our statesmen^ are big 
enough to overlook selfishness for 
the winning of the war. and keep 
the working population steadily at 
work with a chance to live on the 
wage they earn. The working 
classes are as true as the boys in 
the trenches if they are not im- 
posed upon with the fictitious cry of 
shortage. There is a reasonable 
shortage, but why cannot the Gov 
ernment step in. as they did 
the manhood of the country? 
it would cut too deep Into 

I was in Kngland when the 
l..ord Ithondda was Food Controller. 
He had control because he whs In it 
for the Empire'* justice, anil the 
winning of the war: he had no po- 
litical murlc to dance to, nor was 
ho in any brunch of the supply busi- 
ness. He got at the root of the 
whole business by finding out the 
first cost, and followed that up to 
the consumer; all were put on their 
oath of honor, and each line of busi- 
ness was allowed a fair profit, and 
that profit was taxed good ami high. 
There was a fictitious shortage of 
matches last Fall In England. I was 
In hospital at the time at Eastbourne 
and we had to pay 2"*d. <. r >c) a box, 
and only one box a day allowed to 
each customer, and It was reported 
that matches would be Sd. <10c) be- 
fore Christmas, as the boche sub- 
marines had cut off our match-wood 
supply from Norway and Sweden. 
There whs not much kick for a while 
but It was rumored about In London 
that there would be no matches in 
the city by Christmas. All the pen- 
ny-ln-the-slot match machines were 
empty, with a notice on them to that 
effect. Bryant and May. who had 
the franchise for the privilege of 
keeping these machines filled, came 
out In the press and said there was 
no shortage of matches, and It was 
all fictitious, and that If the war 
lasted another ten yearn they could 
supply all the matches necessary at 
the same old price; the reason their 
slot "machines were empty wa* be- 
cause the matches were being cor- 
nered, for they filled their slot ma- 
chines dally until they found them 
being robbed — the robber paid a 
penny and sold for two pence half- 
penny. This made Lord Rhondda 
hold an Investigation of the match 
■hortage; he found there was no 
shortage, and ordered matches to be 
aold at nine pence a dozen boxes, or 
a penny a single box. 

Our Federal Government is sup- 
posed to have control of the food, 
and other supplies. If bo, why are 
the prices on the up-grade? When 
the Food Controller took hold did he 
lower the co*t ot living, or of any 
commodity? If he did. he got one 
on me. for I have never heard or 
s»en It mentioned. Nor have I heard 
of any public Investigation since Mr. 
O'Connor quit the poet of Food Con- 
troller. I am Intimately acquainted 
with Mr. Jama* D. McGregor. Food 
Controller of the Middle West pro-

LIMA. Sept. 14. — Motion for declar- 
ation of war on Germany made at a 
secret Hoaslon of the Peruvian Cham- 
ber of Deputies lant night was defeat- 
ed Uy a largo majority. Instead the 
chamber approved a motion presented 
1>y the Minister of Foreign Affair* 
reading ax follows: 

A The rupture of diplomatic relations 
between Peru and tier many on Octo- 
ber 5, 1917. and the later act* of the 
Peruvian Government resulting from 

said rupture altering the neutral pol- 
icy of the country, define the Interna- 
tional situation of Peru in the pres- 
ent war and constitute a demonstra- 
tion of the adhesion of the republic 
to the cause of liberty and right. 

"This position, in the event of no 
new circumstances should be main- 
tained and unaltered as a protest 
against the outrage of which Peru 
wan the victim and as testimony of our 
solidarity with the great American 
democracy which proclaims for the 
world the reign of Justice." 

It Is expected that the Senate will 
approve the resolution. 


Man Wanted for Gambling 
House Murder Is Being 
Chased by Scores of Police 
and Dogs, 

VANCOL'VKK. Sept. 14. — Hunted 
by men and dogs for ' two straight 
days and nights, shot at and chased 
from field to cover behind standing 
timber and hiding in thickets. George 
Lees, or Lea. a J "Inlander, ex-convlct, 
and all-round bad man, charged with 
the murder of T. J. Roberta, pioneer 
hotelman, and Harry Barnes, last 
Saturday night, still evades the au- 
thorities. Scores of provincial and 
' city police and detectives are seeking 
this man whose chase is not unlike 
that in the noted Harry Tracy case 
several years ago. 

Demonstrating his cunning when 
he commandeered a motor car yester- 
day and outwitted a score or more of 
police officials whom he passed on a 
country road, Lees dashed for the 
cover of nearby timber when the 
pursuit became too hot and giving 
shot for shot In return he was swal- 
lowed up in the woods. When dark- 
ness settled down was safe, but 
wounded. This became known tonight 
when police officials found that after 
evading the cordon thrown about the 
wooded ana where he disappeared 
Uist night that I -ecu had made his 
way to his sweetheart, Jenny Pulky, 
who lives in the neighborhood where 
Lees was sought, and that the girl 
bound up his wounds. 

"This Is the last time you will ever 
see me." the desperado told the 
glrj t "for I will be dead by Saturday 
afternoon. " 

Lees bade an affectionate farewell 
to the girl and made his way back 
into the woods. Not a trace or sign 
of him lias been found since. A re- 
ward of 1500 has been authorized for 
his capture, dead or alive.

cution of a well conceived plan, has

paper booths this morning and saw

newspapers announcing the thor- 
oughness of the American victory.

of the American leaders and the in- 
comparable ardor of their troops."

A Little Shop Talk 

Our Mr. J. D. O'ConnclI, who has just returned from an 
extended purchasing trip to the Eastern markets, confirms 
the rumor that there will he a great scarcity in materials em- 
ployed in the manufacture of Men's Clothing, and a conse- 
quent big rise in prices, in the very near future. 

Being on the ground, however, and in close touch with 
the source of supply. Mr. O'Connell was successful in securing 
a large supply of merchandise suitable for the requirements of 
this big store, and at right prices. 

The "O'Connell" quality is well known, but the following 
brief reminders may be of value to those who have not during 
the past regarded themselves as our regular patrons: 

We carry the largest and best assorted stock of Ladies' 
Furs in the city. We are selling agents for the famous Sellcrs- 
C-ough Fur Co.. of Toronto. 

Our stock of Men's Suits and Coats is the largest and best

ence. If you make a purchase, and feel in any way dissati* 
tied, we will gladly return your money. We like satisfied cu<

Quantity of Butter in Cold 
Storage Is Excessive — Fish 
Dealers Asked to Sell at 
More "Alluring Prices," 

OTTAWA, Sept. 14— T^ie cost of 
living branch of the Department of 
Labor has furnished to Hon. T, W. 
Crothers, Minister of l^abor, a report 
concerning goods In cold storage 
throughout the Dominion. The fact 
that certain cold storage firms are 
hoarding butter Is emphasized by the 
report, which is in part as follows: 

"The quantity of butter in storage 
is excessive. It is not true that the 
whole trade is Involved in this hoard- 
ing, but certain members of the trade 
are holding larger amounts than is 
right and the law allows. It Is grati- 
fying to note that the Koo+1 Hoard has 
already taken steps to force this but- 
ter Into channels where It will be used. 

"The amount of cheese In storage 
at the first of the month is less than 
a month ago and very much less than 
a year ago. 

"There is very little change In the 
amount of eggs in storage. It is not. 
yet the time of year to move eggs 
from storage and apparently very few 
were put in during August. 

"The stocks of oleomargarine have 
declined. This would be a source of 
gratification to all concerned. 

"The total stocks of pork are about 
the same as last month, but a large 
proportion of it Is ompletely cured 
and available for immediate ship- 

"The stocks of beef have Increased. 
The fact agrees with other evidence 
that no new high records of prices 
should occur in the near future. 

"Evidently the stocks of mutton 
and lamb on hand a month ago have 
been sold for consumption an we sug- 
gested. The stocks have declined very 

"The stocks of fowl, while Increased 
above last month, are still insignifi- 

"The stocks of fish are greater than 
a month ago and much greater than a 
year ago. The only gratifying thing 
in this Is that the submarine opera- 
tions off the Atlantic Coast ap- 
parently have not stopped the catch- 
ing of fish. We would suggest to the 
fish dealers that they give greater en- 
couragement to the consumption of 
this fish by selling at more alluring 
prices than those ruling today In the 
fish market."

PARIS, Sept. 14. — The first groups 
of wounded at an evacuation hospital 
behind the battlefront today from St. 
Mihlel sector forgot their sufferings 
in joy over the heating the Germans 
had been given, says the correspond- 
ent of La Liberte. A captured German 
officer declared Americans were "ter- 
rible adversaries," the correspondent 

Wounded men in talking of the en- 
gagement described the fighting as of 
the severest sort, especially In the 
series of dense woods scattered along 
the railroad line. Scarcely two hours 
after the attack was launched the 
Germans started a counter-attack with 
three divisions which, however, were 
unable to stop the American advance. 

"The American troops," adds the 
correspondent, "showed magnificent 
bravery and disregard of danger."

said Baron Shaughnessy. president of 
the Canadian 1'aclnc Railway, upon

His Lordship looks to the establish- 
ment of new markets as one of the

nomic fabric at the conclusion of 
hostilities, and In this connection he 
said that important preparations 
were already being made which en- 
abled him to fee) assured that the

serious dislocation of industrial con-

Siberian Trade 

Healing with Siberia as a potential 
objective for Canadian manufactured

Dealing with the condition In West- 
ern Canada Baron Hhaughneesy ex- 
pressed his pleasure at finding that 
so far as he had penetrated the West 
on this present trip crop conditions 
were beyond earlier expectations and

Future of Banks Taken Over by Bol- 
shevik I Is Proving; Worrying 

STOCKHOLM. Sept. 14. — There is 
much speculation among Russian fin- 
anciers as to the future of all the 
banks in Russia taken over by the 
Bolshevikl who foun<r- the banks a 
great disappointment and were amaz- 
ed at the small amount of money 
realized by their confiscation, and It 
seems doubtful if any new govern- 
ment would find It possible to con- 
tinue the operations of all the banks 
now In existence and badly disorgan- 
ized, and to assume their liabilities. 

Some of the Russian bankers be- 
lieve it would be possible to untangle 
the affairs of old banks and con- 
tinue them, but many others believe 
the only practical plan would be to 
liquidate them and start anew.

to 1863. when It first appeared as 
the Weekly Intelligencer. Surviving 
the vicissitudes of early days. It con- 
solidated with and absorbed various 
other publications, and has passed

Northern Construction Com- 
pany Will Initiate Actual 
Work Tomorrow From Pres- 
ent End of Steel. 

Actual work on track-laying on 
the section of the P. G. E. Railway 
from end of steel, north of Clinton, 
to Williams Creek, will start tomor- 
row, Chief Engineer Proctor, of the 
Department of Railways, stated yes- 

This section was recently let by 
the Provincial Government to the 
Northern Construction Company, and 
as a part of It has already been 
graded, track-laying operations can 
begin at once. The* Province has a 
supply of rails on hand and as the 
contractors have organized their 
forces and have about 150 men on 
the Job, active work cah be done, the 
Idea being to rush work as fast as 
possible in order to secure the bene- 
fit of the remaining tine weather of 
the season. 

The Northern Construction Com- 
pany has already let contracts for 
7 50,000 feet of bridge timbers and 
60,000 ties. Its construction equip- 
ment includes Beven boarding cars, 
two kitchen cars and a complete 
track-laying train. A pile-driving 
crew is on the spot and will com- 
mence Tuesday on the work of driv- 
ing piles for the three bridges which 
must be constructed at a point about 
25 miles north of Clinton. The rail- 
way company has a similar crew at 
work op the docks at Squamlsh and 
at North Vancouver, effecting re- 

It Is expected that at least 30 of 
the 42 miles contracted for by the 
Northern Construction Company will 
be completed thin fall. 

Work on Island Line 

While no announcement is forth- 
coming as to when the C. N. II. Com- 
pany will get ahead with track-lay- 
ing work on the Island section of 
the company's system, on the two 
sections, one from Colwood to Sooke 
and the other from Cowlchan to Nltl- 
nat Lake, the work of getting the 
preliminaries under way is being 
steadily pushed ahead by Chief En- 
gineer White of the company, assist- 
ed by the district engineer, Mr. D. O. 

Within the past month 26 cars of 
rails and six of accessories have been 
shipped from the South Chicago 
plant of the United States Steel Pro- 
ducts Company consigned to Victoria 
and to be used on the Island section. 
These rails are part of the order 
placed by the P. G. E. Railway Com- 
pany two years ago, and which are 
being lent by the Province to the Do- 
minion to be used here under the ar- 
rangement recently arrived at be- 
tween the Premier and the Federal 
Cabinet. A large proportion of the 
rails are now being loaded on barges 
at Port Mann to be brought over to 
the Island. 

Shipments of rails from Chicago 
are not being made as fast as Pre- 
mier Oliver would like to see them 
come, but, he stated yesterday morn- 
ing, there need be no delay on that 
account, for the Province is wilHng 
at a moment's notice, to provide rails 
from the supplies It now possesses 
on the P. G. E. should the company 

find It la being delayed through the 
non-arrival of rails from Chicago. 

In connection with the rail- laying 
work on the Island. Premier 'Oliver 
is In receipt of a communication from 
Major Austin Taylor, representative of 
the aeronautical branch of the Im- 
perial Munitions Board, under whose 
direction the production of spruce for 
aeroplane production la being car- 
ried on in British Columbia. He ex- 
presses his anxiety lest the railway 
work along the Cowlchan Lake route 
to Nltlnat Lake be delayed, pointing 
out that unless some more active 
work is done it may be impossible to 
get the spruce out from that section 
this Winter. 

In reply Premier Oliver has in- 
formed him that so far as the Gov- 
ernment Is concerned there should be 
no delay, and If for any reason rails 
from the East are backward In ar- 
riving the Government will provide 
them from Its own store now on hand 
on the P. G. E. 

A new appointment to the staff of 
the P. G. E. Railway has been made

dent of that city. He has been 
named right-of-way and claims agent

Simple ceremonies, carried out un- 
der the supervision of a squad of 
police who guarded the streets sur- 
rounding the SandH Funeral establish- 
ment, Quadra Street, preceded the 
shipment to China on the out-going 
Japanese liner Kamo Maru of the 
body of Tang Hua Lung, Chinese 
statesman, who was shot and killed 
on Cormorant Street on the evening 
of Sunday. September 1, by Wong 
Chung, a local Chinese barber, who 
committed suicide after making aii 
attempt upon the lives of Ho Te Hult, 
secretary of the murdered statesman; 
Mr. Llngoh Wang, Chinese consul at 
Vancouver, and Fel Lin, a Chinese 
student, who came here with the ex- 

The body, lying in a handsome cas- 
ket, was viewed by a number of Chi- 
nese prominent here and on the Main- 
land, and much emotion was shown 
by them as they took their last look 
on the face of the murdered man. The 
casket was piled high with flowers, 
many magnificent wreaths having 
been sent by Chinese here and in 

Procession to Dock 

From the undertaking establish- 
ment the body was conveyed to the 
Outer Wharves, where it awatted the 
arrival of the out-going steamer. The 
procession, headed by a mounted con- 
stable, comprised the hearse followed 
by a motor containing the secretary, 
the Chinese consul, and two detectives 
who have been guarding the visitors 
for the past week. Another motor 
conveyed a number of local Chinese 
and was followed by a car with police. 
A motor tallyho bearing a dozen other 
members of the local Chinese colony 
brought up the rear of the cortege. 

The police precautions were taken 
consequent upon the fear expressed 
by the Chinese that the dispatch of 
Tang Hua Lung's^ body might be the 
signal for further trouble. That it 
was the belief of the secretary as well 
as the Chinese consul that a further 
attempt might be made upon their 
lives Is indicated by the fact that for 
the past week both have been under 
close guard of detectives at the Km-' 
prfss Hotel, out of which they refused 
to move until last Thursday, when they 
left the hotel for the William Head 
quarantine station, where they re- 
mained until coming to the city yes- 
terday for the ceremonies attending 
the departure of the body. 

The procession stopped at the Inter- 
section of Belleville Street and the 
Causeway Just long enough to permit 
of a photograph of it being taken, and 
then proceeded to the docks. Ho Te 
Huit, the secretary of Tang Hua Lung, 
accompanies the body back to China. 

So far no definite arrangements for 
the shipment to China of the body of 
Wong Chung, murderer of Tang Hua 
Lung, have been made. Word from 
relatives in China is awaited here by 
his friends.

Announcement That Govern- 
ment Has Fixed Price for 
Much-Needed Metal Follows' 
Suggestion by Hon, W, Sloan 

The Dominion Government has 
adopted the suggestion recently made 
to it by Hon. William Sloan, Minis- 
ter of Mines, that it should pay the 
same price for platinum in Canada 
that la being paid in the United 
States, that is $105 per ounce. 

In view of the great demand for 
platinum and other minerals re- 
quired for war purposes, experts of 
the Dominion ' recently arrived in 
British Columbia, and as a result of 
their investigations valuable deposits 
of platinum have been located and 
are now being worked on the Tula- 
meen River. Up to the time of their 
arrival here there was no fixed price 
for platinum. Its export was pro- 
hibited, but In view of the fact that 
the United States Government has 
fixed a price of $105 per ounce the 
Minister of Mines, after conferring 
with the Federal experts, communi- 
cated with Ottawa suggesting that It 
would be only fair that the price in 
British Columbia should be the same 
as that In the States. This would 
encourage owners of platinum-bear- 
ing properties in this Province and 
at the same time mitigate against 
any attempt at smuggling the valu- 
able metal out of the Province. 

The Minister communicated with 
lion. Martin Bnrrell, Secretary of 
State and I^edrral Minister of Mines, 
which was followed by the announce- 
ment of the price the Government is 
willing to pay. 

The Dominion Assay Office at Van- 
couver is now prepared to pay $105 
per troy ounce for platinum metal 
contained in ingots, scrap, sponge, 
etc., and a flat rate of $103 per troy 
ounce for metals of the platinum 
group contained in the unrefined 
state, such as nuggets and placer 

At the above figure platinum Is 
Just five times as valuable as gold.

The Sonora has been described 
as the finest instrument of sound 
production that human ingenuity 
ever devised. We will go fur- 
ther, and say that it is the most 
beautifully constructed phono- 
graph in the world today. 

The Sonora Phonograph is a 
copy of no other instrument — it 
is a vast improvement on all. It 
reproduces, the genius, the dramatic power, and the voices of 
the world's greatest artists, in a tone as clear as a bell, as true 
as the ring of a gong, and as sweet as an old love song. 

To hear the Sonora is to listen*. to." and be in the presence of 
Stracciari, Caruso. Melba and Case. You can hear the great 
instrumentalists — Kreisler, Parlow, Spaulding, Casals, Hoff- 
man, Paderewski, Godo>vsky ; all the great comedians — Wil- 
liams. Jolson, Weber and Fields; all the great Bands and 
Orchestras. For Sonora plays all records and improves 
them all.

Tli* semi-annual meeting of the

The soldier, boy rightfully occupies 
the foremost place in the hearts and 
prayers of the home people today, and 
while all are doing their best for 
them, the public must not forget or 
neglect the great second line of de- 
fence, the girl. 

The girls one and all are rapidly 
forming an army — the great army of 
the employed. They, too, are run- 
ning risks they have never run before. 
They are confronted with big prob- 
lems. Many of them are as truly serv- 
ing their country as the men who go 
to the front. 

The Young Women's Christian As- 
sociation, world wide, began its mis-

itself In every country and In every

Y.W.C.A. has sprung up In that town. 
It is absolutely essential in the growth 
of every city, for It can reach out 
through countless channels to care 
for precious girl life. It is well or- 
ganized. Organization has not robbed 
it of its great human touch, but rather, 
like any good women, it has seen the 
value of system to the greater accom- 
plishment of its work. Its propa-

The Travellers' Aid branch will care 
for the girl of Victoria as she arrives 
In Toronto or Montreal to begin her 
university work or to seek employ- 
ment In any far-away city. 

A girl arrives from China. Interest- 
ed friends have written the associa- 
tion. Employment Is found for her, 
and the association is her home until 
in the passage of years she is estab- 
lished in her own. 

The association is preventive in its 
aim. It seeks to help the girl to be 
always as she should be. 

It recognises the great value of a 
home, and is as homelike as a very 
large family can ever be. It realises 
that the kindly Interest taken in the 
girl goes far to making her feel at 

It also realizes that home is not a 
place for rules and regulations, but 
simply a place where some thought 
must be taken of another's comfort. 

The tag day on Saturday, September 
21 is not for the maintenance of the 
house department, for every associa- 
tion makes that self-supporting, but 
it is always for the ^utaide work of 
the association that public support Is 

Girls love a good time, and the as- 
sociation stsnds for the good time for 
them, therefore, big parties and small 
group parties are popular. 

The association stands for the best 
development of the girl along her 
four-sided nature, and it Is endeavor - 
Ing to the best of Ma ability to make 
itself a real necessity to the girl who 
needs help and to the girl who needa 
to give the help.

The Making of a Hat 

After the felt body has been kneaded it is 
dipped in boiling water and rolled in various 
directions :n order to accomplish a smooth, 
even felting of the fur. The shrinking pro- 
cess, of course, proceeds during all the time 
it is being worked in this boiling water. 
Following this treatment, shellac which has 
been dissolved in alcohol is forced into the 
hat for the purpose of stiffening it. Then 
comes the shaping. We have dJfT f\f\ 

the new shapes at $5.00 and.

Defeat Congo* nt Beacon Hill Yester- 
day Afternoon After Poor Ntnrt 
— Hurry Gurdler Is nark Again 

The friendly cricket match be- 
tween the Albion* and the Congos at 
Beacon Hill yesterday afternoon wan 
productive of some excellent playing, 
the Alblons winning by a margin of 
ten run* on the first Innings, after 
a weak atart, which gave the Congos 
every hope of carrying off the hon- 

The Congregational team were the 
first to bat, Booth and Worthlngton 
being sent In to break the howling 
of Bossom and Ashton. The high 
scores for the Hide were compiled 
by Barton and Booth, the former 
'putting up a total of 22 before be- 
ing cfiught by fioHHom, while Booth 
amassed 21 runs berore Bite sent 
him from the field. The rest of the 
team between them brought the to- 
tal score up to 7 4 before all the side 
was out. 

The Alblons run Into misfortune 
immediately they went to bat. 
Speak, for the Congos, putting up 
a fine exhibition of the bowler's art 
and dismissing the first four men 
off the field for a totnl of three runs. 
Bite then wen! to bat and not only 
put up a splendid, 46, but so encour- 
nged the rest of his side, that con- 
tlstent work won the game for the 
Uhlons with a total of 84. 

In the second Innings the Congos 
compiled a total of 120 against the 
bowling of Plte, Freeman and Ho- 
garth,. but the fading light compelled 
the shortening of the Alblons' sec- 
ond trip' to bat, the game being, call- 
ed whan but six wickets had fallen. 

Harry Gardler was welcomed back 
to the field by his team-mutes when 
he unexpectedly showed up, all be- 
lieving that he waa on his way Kast 
to become a blrdman. However, It 
developed that officials at Vancouver 
had no( been satisfied with his medi- 
cal certificates and had sent him 
back for further examination.

this period that they notched their 
tallies, Bloom being the artist who 
netted the ball on all three occa- 

In the second half the (Jarrlson 
took a brace, and playing a much 
harder game, kept the fight well into 
the Fragments' end. Sweeney scoring 
with a nice shot and Bessett later 
netting the ball from a penalty. 

Both the teams made fine show- 
ings, and with more combination to 
back up their supply of ginger tho 
Garrison bid fair to do good work 
this season. The Fragments showed 
that their strength at present Mes in 
their forward line and its Immediate 
support, the combination work done 
by this portion of their machine be- 
ing in every way excellent. 

Lieut. Atkinson carried the whistle 
for the game, and the manner In

WASHINGTON, Sept. 14.— Athletic 
sports as formerly pursued, Involving 
extended trips and specialised train- 
ing, will not be permitted at colleges 
and other Institutions having army 
Students training corps. Col. R. L. 
Bees, chairman of the War Depart- 
ment committee on education and 
special training, has advised presi- 
dents of such, institutions In a letter 
made public here today. 

Jt will be : the policy of the com- 
mittee, however, to strongly encour- 
age athletic aborts within such Insti- 
tutions and with neighboring insti- 
tutions, says Col. Bees, in cases In 
which the distances are so short aa 
to necessitate no interruption of the 
weekly schedule of academic and mil- 
itary training. 


The proceeds of the Sailors* Flag 
Day held on September 7 have been 
finally made up and amount to the 
sum of $3,204.76, and the Victoria 
Branch of the Navy League of Can- 
ada wishes to thank the taggers and 
general public who contributed so 
generously to the cause of the sailors. 
Special mention Is made of the splen- 
did collection made by Mrs. Duces 
"Peter," Mr*. Troup's "Snoozleums." 
Mrs. Ouy's •'Bumpsle." Mrs. Wood- 
ward's "Muggins" and Mrs. Copas" 

Since the tag day the Victoria 
Branch has bean exceedingly busy 
and haa formed a committee under 
the convenershlp of Mrs. Rowlands to 
collect clothing to be sent to the Old 
Country for the as* of thewldows and 
children of sailors. Any donations of 
slightly worn or old clothing which 
could be mended or cut down will be 
gratefully received by this Sailors' 
Committee at the Navy League

All day yesterday there was a 
steady exodus of sportsmen from the 
city. By car and train the huntsman 
and his dog made their way into the 
wilds In search of door or grouse, and 
the end Is not yet, for many hun- 
dreds are expected to leave today for 
various points. 

No reports are yet to hand from 
the various districts of the Island 
other than Sooke, and the word from 
that neighborhood Is to the effect 
that both birds and deer must be able 
to read the calendar for the deer 
which so freely fed In the open In 
the early part of the week are re- 
ported to have hied them hence and 
left the highroads in solitude, while 
the blue grouse have evaded the 
keenest sight, there being only one 
sportsman who had reported having 
a shot at a bird, this in territory 
which waa reported to be almost pes- 
tered with game. 

However, such reports have had no 
effect on the migration of hunters In 
parties and alone. Kach one feels 
assured that the fault Is not with the 
birds but rather with the other fel- 
low's eyes or his dog, and the 
exodus la merrily going on with every 
passing hour.

First Blretless Teasel 

The first steel vessel built without 
rl\etH was recently launched some- 
where on the south coast of Kngland, 
In the presence of Lord Plrrle. the Con- 
troller-tleneral of Merchant Shipping. 
The vessel was built In a shipyard op- 
erated by the Inland Waterways and 
Docks Section of the Royal Engineers, 
and her production may mark un epoch

Instead of the plates of this vessel 
being riveted and caulked, they are 
Joined together by electric welding. 
The shell, up to and Including the bot- 
tom seam of the bilge plate. Is contin- 
uously welded Inside and out. The 
cross seams are similarly treated. The 
outside Is continuously welded and the 
Inside tack-welded, that is to say. a 
short section — say 3 Inches — is welded 
and then another section of about twice 
as much is skipped. The frames, floors, 
deck brackets and non-watertight hulk- 
heads are tack-welded, and the water- 
tight bulkheads continuously welded. 
In the case of the deckplates butt-weld- 
ing has been adopted, the plates being 
arranged end to end, without any over- 
lap. It Is considered that the mode of 
construction followed allows a good 
niarsln of safety.

In close touch with this experimental 
work, with the result that arrangements 
are In hand for the manufacture of a 
number of 10,000 ton standard ships. In

Henry Ford's First Boat 

With the launching of Kagle-1. the 
first of the fleet of submarine destroy- 
ers being built by Henry Ford for the 
United Stales navy, detailed Informa- 
tion concerning the construction, pur- 
poses and possibilities ot this newest 
naval weapon became public for the 
first time. The general belief that the 
boats were little more than exagger- 
ated launches, equipped with lllrht 
guns, was dispelled when the vessel, 
204 feet long, larger than the old type 
of United Htates destroyers, was drop- 
ped into the waters of River Rouge. 
Tabulated by dates the story of th« 
Ragle Is this: The Ragles are within 
thirty feet of approximating the length 
of the standard 1,500- ton wooden ships 
being built for the Emergency Fleet 
Corporation. Viewed from above deck, 
the Ragle Is much more like a flounder 
than a mackerel. Its midship cross sec- 
tion bears a strong likeness to the 
lines of a canal barge. Its stern Is 
square and blunt. The remainder of 
the ship Is built generally In straight 
lines and plain surfaces. The bow, 
however, tapers to a knife- like edge, 
seemingly sharp, though, and strong 
enough literally to rut a submarine In 
two. Except for the high de*»k house 
and the bridge a little forward am Iri- 
sh I p. the deck of the Eagle Is un-

Oermany under what diplomatic 
subterfuges soever, will propose to 
exchange the west for ths east. And 
she will then, as she already an- 
nounced, begin to prepare for the 
next war. That the Oerman pro- 
posals will appear exceedingly at- 
tractive there Is no doubt. Bat What- 
ever they may be. thsre Is but 1 one 
answer to them. There can be no 
honourable or firm peace until the 
Allies, by defeating Germany in. the 
field, can Impose their own ttrma. 
That Germany can be defeated they 
believe. That Germany shall be de- 
feated la what the Allies have re- 
solved. And victory can be hastened 
by the use of that economic syeapon 
which the Allies have been so stow 
to employ. — London Morning Pest,

MONTREAL, Sapt. 14.— Mr. I. W. 
Killam, president of the Royal 
Bacurltles Corporation. Montreal, hu 
adai esssS two open Utters to Premier 
Borden and air Thomae White, Mtaia- 
ter of Finance, on the question of tax 
eiempt bonds and graduated Income 
tax. In the letter to Sir Thomas 
White, Mr. Killam strongly urge* 
that the Government policy of tax 
exempt bends be Immediately aban- 
doned. Mr. Killam. as head of one 
of the largest bond houses In Canada, 
has had every opportunity of study- 
ins bend conditions in Canada, and 
he places full Information before the 
Government In order that the finan- 
cing- of tbe country may be done on 
tho soundest and most economical 
basis. The letter to Sir Robert Bor- 
den follows: 

Letter to Premier 

Sir, — It Is now evident to the casual 
observer as it has long been apparent 
to the thoughtful student that money 
will be one of the most important fac- 
tors in determining the issue of the 
great war in which we are engaged. 
As Canadians we are filled with in- 
tense pride for the matcnless achieve- 
ments of our gallant countrymen on 
the battlefields of France and Flan- 
ders, and we contemplate with Justi- 
fiable satisfaction the results of the 
efforts of our industrial and farm- 
ing population In maintaining ade- 
quate supplies of munitions for the 
fighting forces of Great Britain and 
our Allies in the field of finance. 
Our record has not been satisfactory. 
At the outbreak of war experienced 
financial authorities urged your gov- 
ernment to enact such legislation as 
would Insure the collection of suffi- 
cient annual revenues to enable a 
fair proportion of the cost of the war 
to be paid out of the current Income 
of the nation. For this purpose Par- 
liament Increased customs duties, 
postage and inland revenue charges. 
Imposed stamps taxes and demanded 
for the State a share of the profits 
earned by the business undertaking 
of the people; but none of these forms 
of taxation directly affected the 
great masses of the people, except as 
enhanced prices Increased the cost of 
living. Appeals were vainly made to 
the Minister of Finance to meet the 
financial necessities .of the State by 
imposing an income tax. No sound 
and comprehensive scheme of na- 
tional taxation Intended to meet the 
requirements of the present and the 
demands of the future has yet been 
submitted to the Canadian Parlia- 
ment. The results obtained have been 
in keeping with the policy pursued. 
We have entered upon the fifth year 
of the war. Although the value of 
Canada'l field crops alone for the 
years 1918 and 1917 amounted to 
nearly two billions of dollars, the 
total sum paid towards the cost of 
the war out of ordinary revenues dur- 
ing the same period has been only 
$113,000,000. or much less than has 
been expended by the Canadian peo- 
ple for pleasure automobiles since the 
outbreak of war. Finally, the Min- 
ister of Finance reluctantly yielded to 
the demand of an enlightened public 
opinion and submitted to Parliament 
towards the close of tbe session of 
1917 a bill providing for the imposing 
of a graduated income lax. which has 
yet to become an effective source of 

Effect of Luxury Ban 

The .ecent belated prohibition of 
the Importation of luxuries and the 
regulation of other imports together 
with an Increased tariff are already 
lessening our customs revenues. The 
enactment of prohibitory liquor legis- 
lation will Inevitably curtail our in- 
land revenue reports. Business pro- 
fits cannot be further taxed without 
dislocating the industrial life of the 
country. It Is perhaps not the least 
complaint of the commercial commu- 
nity that this capacity of the citizen 
to pay has been greater than the 
xeal and Industry of the finance de- 
partment to collect. I observe from 
a recent number of the Spectator 
that the true yield of the Income tax 
and supertax last year in Great Bri- 
tain was as nearly as possible £240,- 
000,000 out of a total of £707.000,000. 
and It Is further stated that "after 
the war" when the^excess profits 
duty at all events in Its present form 
will have ceased to operate the In- 
come tax will become proportionately 
an even more Important Item In the 
total revenue. What Is true in Great 
Britain in this regard will apply with 
equal force in Canada. Any consid- 
erable Increase In the customs tariff 
will not be tolerated by Western Can- 
adians. The Minister of Finance ob- 
tained the last increase as a war 
measure as he did the enactment of 
the business pi of Its war tax. It Is 
therefore clearly apparent that reli- 
ance must be placed upon the income 
tax not only to defray a portion of 
our war expenditures and to meet the 
charges on our national debt, but In 
the future to maintain our very ex- 
istence as a solvent State. Having 
failed for four years to provide suffi- 
cient revenues to defray out of cur- 
rent Income a fair and adequate pro- 
portion of our vast war expenditures, 
recourse has been had to borrowing. 
We have by this method placed upon 
the returning oMieen soldier who has 
offered his life In defence of the 
Dominion a burden of taxation that 
in operation Involves his being called 
upon to pay an undue share not only 
for the uniform he has worn, and the 
food he has consumed, but for the 
very ammunition he has used In the 
destruction of the enemy. We have 
already made four domestic loans. We 
are about to nuke a further of five 
hundred millions of 1 14 per cent Vic- 
tory bonds. It has been announced 
that these bonds are to be Issued free 
from all Income taxes p r es ent or 
that, have been or may bo 1m- 
by the Parliament of Canada. 

i% per eent with limited Income tax 
exemption. It Is also Imperative that 
those who lend their money to the 
nation should do so on exactly equal 
terms. The rata of return to the ar- 
tisan must be the same as that to ths 
captain of industry. The farmer must 
be on an equality with tbe manufac- 
turer. No sale of national securities 
should be mads on terms that will 
result In exempting from taxation the 
income derived from accumulated 
wealth while placing a proportionately 
Increased burden upon the earnings 
of the Industry and labor of the peo- 
ple. If tax-free securities are Issued 
the citizen who remained In Canada 
and made a profit of, say, a million 
dollars out of the manufacture of 
munitions or the sale of food ' pro- 
ducts which he Invested In Victory 
bonds will be relieved from the pay- 
ment of Income tax on $55,000 per 
annum, while, his fellow citizen who 
volunteered, fought and returned 
from service overseas will during the 
period of readjustment at least earn 
a scanty livelihood out of which he 
must pay perhaps no Income tax be- 
cause his earnings may be so small 
as to be exempt from such form of 
taxation. But a proportion of 
the Increased taxation in other forms 
which the exemption of the income 
derived from tax-free Victory bonds 
lnsthe hands of the war-made million- 
aire will thus impose upon him. The 
Inevitable result will be a not unrea- 
sonable demand on the part of our 
returned men to be relieved for life 
from the payment of all Income 
taxes. If the present Issue of Vic- 
tory bonds is exempt front all income 
taxation, the result will be that $«7,- 
500,000, representing the annual In- 
come from Canadian tax free securi- 
ties, wiil make absolutely no contri- 
bution to the revenue* of the State. 
The Minister of Finance has publicly 
stated, that the Canadian people are 
wealthier and are more prosperous 
than ever before. Five and one-half 
per cent is a high Interest rate upon a 
bond secured by a mortgage upon all 
the property, real and personal, of 
the Dominion of Canada, and wealth 
of its 8,000,000 of peoples. 

People Ready to Lend 

I am confident that It does not re- 
quire tax exemption to Induce Cana- 
dians to lend their money to the 
nation for war purposes. The rich 
have not asked for such a concession; 
the average citisen has not even con- 
cerned himself to ascertain what tax 
exemption means. Canadians volun- 
teered by hundreds of thousands for 
military service overseas:- they were 
actuated by a high sense of duty and 
a lofty spirit of patriotism. Those 
who remain I am sure are not less 
willing to contribute their bit to the 
common cause by placing their re- 
sources to the extent of their reason- 
able ability at the disposal of the 
state in the form of a loan paying 5 ^ 
per cent half yearly, and at the same 
time retaining their place as tax pay- 1 
ers qp an equality with those gallant 
men who by their endeavor have 
given whatever real value may attach 
to our country's securities. For these 
reasons and those given In detail In 
the enclosed communication address- 
ed to the Hon. the Minister of Fin- 
ance I am firmly convinced that there 
Is not at this time either excuse, 
reason, or necessity for the Issue of 
any further tax free securities by the 
Dominion of Canada. 

I am not Insensible to the respon- 
sibility resting upon you and your 
Government. Nothing but a profound 
sense of duty and a sincere conviction 
as to the unsoundness,' extravagance, 
and unfairness of financial operations 
based upon the future Issue of tax 
free securities Induces me to write 
this letter. 

In the hope of stimulating that 
free and full d.scussion which Is the 
essence of democratic government, I 
am mailing copies of this letter to 
the members of the Senate, the 
IIoubc of Commons, and to the press. 
I have the honor to be, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

, To Sir Thomas White 

Mr. KUlam's letter to the Minister 
of Finance follows: 

81r. — During the past four years 
the governments of those countries 
which have been Involved In the 
great war have had to deal with 
problems and responsibilities unpar- 
alleled In hjstory. To the various 
governments there have been delegat- 
ed more extensive powers than would 
have been delegated to democratic 
legislative bodies, were it not for the 
necessities of war. 

Responsibility for clear reasoning 
and wise decision has corresponding- 
ly Increased as the obligation to se- 
cure the sanction of the responsible 
legislative body to each respective 
measure has been eliminated. 

The responsibility of your depart- 
ment has been enormously increased 
by reason of the war. Public opinion 
has also placed upon our financial 
administration in no uncertain man- 
ner the responsibility not only of ef- 
fectively bearing Its part In the bur- 
den of carrying on the war. but of 
maintaining a clear conception of and 
making adequate provision for the 
period of readjustment that must In- 
evitably follow the return to produc- 
tive occupations, not only of our army 
In the field, but of that targe num- 
ber of our citizens now engaged In 
war endeavor. 

Look to the Fa tare 
Wise and sound decisions as to fin- 
ancial policy Is a vital and fundamen- 
tal necessity to the welfare of our 
country, and should have regard not 
only to the demands of tns moment. 
'but to Its effect upon the future 
economic life of Canada. 

It Is with great reluctance, but 
with a deep se ns e of responsibility 
and with tho strongest feeling of Its 
grave Importance, that I ven tur e to 
protest against a policy which, la 
tho light of 

should. I feel, ho immediately atan- 

tho value of this unknown factor. It 
should not bo attached to tho terms 
of any future b orr owing by tho gov- 
ernment of Canada until It Is fully 
ascertained and declared. 
, I need hardly remind yon that the 
money borrowed by provta- 
enta, et tles. municipali- 
ties, public utilities, Industries, farm- 
ers, merchants,, and others. Is from 
one-half per eent to three per cent 
more than tho basis fixed by the 
Government of Canada for its loans. 
The more the jksvernmsat pays the 
more everybody*"has to pay. It Is. 
therefore, clearly your fundamental 
duty so to direct tho finances of the 
country that you may obtain all the 
money required by the Government 
at the lowest possible cost, present 
and future, until maturity, and all the 
force and power of the Government 
and the people should be directed to 
making this cost as low as may be 
reasonably possible. 

Mr. McAdoo's Views * 
The secretary of the United States 
i Treasury Is reported to have socontly 
said In reference to interest rates: 

"The public should realize that If 
the rate were raised they should be 
simply lifting themselves by their 
own boot-straps. If Interest rates 
were to be Inoreased, It would mean 
just that much more burden on the 
American people. The situa* in 
should be kept sound by 'stabilizing 
the rate. If to the interest of the 
people, banker and business man, be- 
cause If the government raises its bid 
for money, then all industry will havo 
to' pay proportionately more for new 

The sale of bonds carrying unre- 
stricted exemption from taxes Is ex- 
travagant and unsound. Any addi- 
tional price that may be realized for 
such tax exempt securities cannot off- 
set more than, at. most, a quarter or 
- third of the direct loss arising front 
this method of finance. 

Tou say: The Government securi- 
ties should have priority of market 
and any special advantage which can 
be given to them. 

This applies only to the protection 
of the supply of money, not to the 
price paid for It. If the money be 
Jn the country, the Government can 
obtain all the money it requires at a 
fair rate of Interest. If the money be 
not In the country. It cannot be ob- 
tained at any price. Priority of mar- 
ket, restriction of imports of luxu- 
ries, foreign Investments, and non- 
essential production are among the 
very effective means which have been 
adopted by different countries, at 
different stages during the war. with 
a view to practical elimination of 
competition with government borrow- 

Taxes on Borrowers 

In Great Britain the Income tax 
and super-tax are effective methods 
of obtaining revenue from lenders of 
money. Inadvertently our govern- 
ment Is about to make these taxes, 
4n effect, not taxes on the lenders of 
money, but taxes on borrowers of 
money, and has thereby set a danger- 
ous precedent which unless firmly 
checked at once will cause serious 
loss to the Dominion treasury and un- 
necessary hardship to borrowers and 
producers of all classes throughout 
the Dominion. 

The standard of Dominion Govern- 
ment credit has Inadvertently been al- 
lowed to attain an unnecessarily high 
figure. This situation has only re- 
cently become fully appreciated by 
our financial community, and if 
dealt with now can be remedied with 
ease by the reversal of the Govern- 
ment policy of conducting its war 
finance by the issue of tax exempt 

In your statement you argue 
strongly that our four outstanding 
domestic loans to date would have 
had to bear an additional one-half of 
one per cent annual Interest If the tax 
exemption privilege had been with- 
held; in other words, that the Cana- 
dian people were, and are. not will- 
ing to lend their money to the Gov- 
ernment at less than <P,i per cent. 
Stated badly In this, your argument 
carries Its own refutation, and would 
never have been advanced had you an 
adequate appreciation of the value of 
the bonds you had for sale, your 
ability to control your market, and 
the support and buying power of our 

In reference to our United States 
financing you say: 

It was an imperative condition that 
the securities should be tax free, no 
matter in whose hands they might be 

They should have been made tax- 
free only In respect to American 
holders, and the price realized for 
these bonds was not increased by one 
dollar by reason of the neglect to re- 
tain the power t8 tax such Income 
when received by residents of Canada. 
Government Lax 

If the Government had prohibited 
by Order-ln-Councll the purchase by 
our citizens of Anglo-French, Cana- 
dian and other Allied loans In the 
United States, as undoubtedly should 
have been done, and If a reasonably 
substantial Income tax had been Im- 
posed from the beginning of the war 
upon the Canadian people, with its 
consequent- Influence upon the Impor- 
tation of luxuries, our United Slates 
exchange situation would have been 
greatly benefited and the necessity 
for United States financing might 
have been entirely obviated. 

It Is an elementary principle that 
public offerings of securities should 
be made to all subs c riber s at the 
same price and on the same terms. 
In our four previous loans this estab- 
lished principle has been set sslds 
through failure to realise the full sig- 
nificance of the situation arlstng out 
of the ultimate adoption of the gradu- 
ated income tax. But now that ths 
Government and the entire financial 
and business community Is seized of 
ths fact that tho maintenance of tho 
graduated Income tax gives to tax- 
exempt bonds an unequal value In tho 
hands of different purnhossis. It Is 
not desirable that ths Government 
should issue any 
terms that may U..^, 
attempt to tabs unfair advantage of

Durability in a firebox depends mostly upon 
its ability to expand when hot and to contract 
when cold, without cracking. 

Ever notice that steel rails are laid with a 
space at the ends— it is wider in winter than in 
summer. That space allows for stretching in 
the warm summer weather. 

Kootenay fireboxes are made of nine pieces 
of pure semi-steel. They can expand without

Population of St. Mihiel Wel- 
come Generals Pershing and 
Petain and American War 

RAINE. Sept. 14— The civilian popu- 
lation of St. Mihiel almost wholly 
feminine because of the removal of 
males of military age, welcomed ' 
Newton D. Baker, the American Sec- 
retary of War, and Generals Persh- 
ing and Petain when they visited the 
village a few hours after it was cap- 

Aged women and girls crowded 
about Secretary Baker and the two 
generals accompanying him to pay- 
homage to their deliverers. It was 
not merely curiosity: It was an emo- 
tional outburst following almost 
three years of the conquerors' sup- 
pression. The word was passed about 
that the umall civilian was the Ameri- 
can Secretary of War whose armies 
had accomplished their relief and 
from half-destroyed houses and from 
points far removed from the centre 
of the village inhabitants hurried to 
get a glimpse of the visitors. 

A military band was brought up 
from the rear., the Marseillaise was 
played, and civilian restraint broke 
down completely. Women crowded 
forward ostensibly to shake the sec- 
retary's hand, but they kissed his 
hands and wept, and then they Joined 
in a chorus of thankfulness. There 
were no speeches, but many times 
Secretary Baker responded briefly to 
expressions of gratitude oftentimes 
half-hysterlcally uttered. 



American Offensive and Threat of 

Bombardment of Cities Cause 

Excitement Along Border 

official dispatch from France today 
says there are evidences of excite-

border and quote the following from 
the Mulhausen Tageblatt: 

"The American offensive in Upper 
Alsace and the long range guns sup- 
posed to be intended to reduce to 
ashes the towns of this country are 
badly alarming the Inhabitants. Even 
people of a high rank tremble at the 
news like little children listening to 
ghost stories. Of course, the evacu- 
ation of Mulhausen and the whole of

said that all measures for the actual

MONTREAL, Sept. 14. — Substan- 
tial wage increases, the recognition of 
the eight-hour day and time and a 
half pay for overtime were today 
granted the operators of the C.P.R 
Telegraphs by the Labor Committee 
of the Canadian Railway War Board. 

About 800 men are affected. The 
representatives of the Telegraphers' 
Union recently applied to the board 
for better terma than were accorded 
them by a board of conciliation which 
considered their demands. The award 
announced today increases the wage 
additions and other concessions grant- 
ed the men by the conciliation board. 

The men asked that Morse and au- 
tomatic telegraphers in the service of 
the C.P.R. be placed upon the same 
rating. The board increased the rates 
for the automatic operators but did 
not put them on a parity with the 
Morse operators. 

Inclusion of sub-chiefs within the 
wage scale, and also the right to or- 
ganize was asked for. The board de- 
cided that sub-chiefs had the right to 
Join the union and ordered that the 
wage scale schedule should include all 
such chiefs who did not have to hire 
or discipline employees. 

The eight-hour day Instead of 
eight and a half hours was granted at 
all day offices Where two or more 
men are employed. ' 

The board decided thitt the hours 
of labor now shall be: S hours for day 
work; seven and a half hours for night 
work, split or swing tricks, and seven 
hours for late night operators start- 
ing work at 8 o'clock or after. 

Overtime is to be computed at the 
rate of time and a half instead of an 
the basis of a seven-hour day as here- 
tofore. The board Rave overtime ac- 
cruing within eight hours of service, 
to be paid pro-rata, in the larger of- 
fices and nine hours in one-man sta- 
tions, to be paid for at time and a half. 

In connection wlth> the rates for 
fixed percentages in the offices the 
company proposes new rates A>f 
$131.75, (123.26. and $110 per month 
In the West. The men asked for 
$131.76. $127.50 and $123.25; the 
board awarded $131.75, $126.75 and 

For the Eastern offices the com- 
pany proposed $123.75, $112.50 and 
$98.70, the men asked $123.25, $119, 
and $112.76. The board gave $123.25, 
$117.50 and $109.98. 

The board alsso asked for $90 a 
month minimum for all Morse opera- 
tors for large relay offices. The com- 
pany left this question open to the 
board which established it at $85 a 
month. The board further establish- 
ed the rate for automatic operators 
at $75 a month as a minimum and $85 
after one year's services. 

The wage scale Is effective as from 
May 1. last, the new rules governing 
overtime and hours of service coming 
into effect on October 1. 

The men have accepted the award 
and agree to work under It till May 1

WASHINGTON, Sept. 14.— Elimina- 
tion of the St. Mihiel salient by the 
first big American offensive and the 
consequent reduction of that sector 
by 22 miles, General March said to- 
day. Is of extreme Importance in that 
it gives the Allies a much better base 
"for future offensive operations." 

General March paid high tribute to 
the American forces which in less 
than two days wiped out this salient, 
the narrowest and most angular on 
the entire Western front. The oper- 
ations there, he said, not only were 
a tribute to the work of the staff, 
but to the individual soldier. 

"It is hot stuff." he said warmly. 
Quick. Sharp Blows 

General March pointed out in con- 
nection with the German claim that 
St. Mihiel salient had been abandoned 
voluntarily, that no mention was 
made by the Germans of the big loss 
of prisoners. Capture of the salient 
was accomplished by quick, sharp 
blows on both flanks, General March 
explained. The American troops ad- 
vanced across a difficult terrain con- 
sisting of densely-wooded hills Inter- 
sected by numerous ravines. 

General March laid particular em- 
phasis on the determination of the 
United States to continue Its whole 
strength against the Germans. He re- 
ferred to recent publications which 
he said Intimated that America was 
not going through with the war de- 
spite the enlarged military pro- 
gramme. This suggestion, he de- 
clared, was preposterous In Its fals- 

It seemed Incredible, the chief of 
staff said, that such propaganda, 
could gain attention at a time when 
the War Department had Just se- 
cured Increaed age limits for the 
draft and was about to ask an addi- 
tional $7,000,000,000 for the use of 
the military establishment during the 
present year. 

All reports from American forces 
at the front indicated high spirits 
and enthusiasm throughout the whole 
army. General March said the Am- 
erican soldier quickly became Im- 
bued with this spirit aa soon as he 
landed. If he did not possess it before 

The arrival abroad of the fortieth 
division was announced. Part now 
Is In England. 

Record Debarkation 

General March read a cablegram 
from a debarkation port In Francs 
showing that $*,000 men had landed 
m one morning and that ll.eoe mors 
would hs put sahore the same day. 
ships had entered the port

Enemy Gains Temporary 

Which Are Speedily Nullified. 

PARIS. Sept. 14.— The Belgian War 
Office tonight Issued the following 
official communication: 

"On the night of September 13, the 
enemy violently bombarded our ad- 
vanced works to the east of Nleuport 
and was able to penetrate temporarily 
into one of our watching posts north- 
west of St. George. 

"In the Meckem zone the Germans 
succeeded in occupying temporarily 
the line of posts recently conquered 
by us to the southwest of Bralbank. 
This morning (Friday), in spite q/ the 
counter-attacks in force, we recon- 
quered all these posts, capturing about 
60 men and four machine guns." 


Boys' Gymnasium Class Opens New 
Schedule — Building Has Been 
Greatly Improved by Renovations 

The Fall programme of the Y. M. 
C. A. has now been formulated, and 
will commence with the opening of 
the boys' gymnasium class tomorrow, 
that for the men starting a week 

Alterations and renovations to the 
building have been completed during 
the past few weeks at a cost of about 
$1,000, and the results which have 
been attained are being commented 
on as greatly Improving the building. 

The Boys" Division Is now under 
the superintendence of Mr. A. It. 
Merrix, the new secretary, and he has 
in hand h programme which will in- 
terest and attract many hundreds of 
the youth of the city during the 
Winter months. 

It is the intention of the committee 
to make a special feature of the at- 
traction provided by the swimming 
pool and at the same time endeavor 
to greatly increase the popularity of 
the men's gymnasium classes, which 
have been such a feature of the work 
of the Y. M. C. A. during past winter 


PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. H.-^Ayde 
Johnson, of Vancouver, Wash.. en- 
gineer on a local passenger train of 
the Spokane. Portland & .Seattle 
Railroad, operating between Port- 
land and Kail Bridge, Wash., was in- 
stantly killed, and J.aB. Ithue. brake- 
man, of Portland, was seriously In- 
jured when the train plunged into a 
landslide at 9 o'clock last night, four 
miles beyond Lyle, Wash., according 
to a report made to the railroad head- 
quarters here. The engine was com- 
pletely overturned but none of the 
passenger coaches left the rails. None 
of the many passengers was injured. 

Fireman Deabo, who was in the 
cab of the engine, escaped without In- 
Jury. A heavy rain had loosened the 
earth and rock, causing the slide. 
The train crew had no intimation 
of the danger until directly upon tho 
mass of rock. Tho road waa blocked 
until 10 o'clock today.

(Jeorgp, who suffered a chill accompan-

October 1st All Power Laundries 
of This Gty Will Go on a Strictly 

Cash Basis 

This means that every package of laundry must be paid for 
ON DELIVERY, excepting those who at present have a 
charge account with us. 

No New Ledger Accounts Will Be Opened 

This step is due entirely to abnormal conditions created by 
the war, and is really a measure of protection, not only for 
ourselves, but for our customers as well. As patriotic citizens, 
we have endeavored to obey the request of the Government 
for the release of all man-power possible and for the conserva- 
tion of fuel, supplies and labor. Consequently we are not only 
operating with a reduced working force; but that force is con- 
tinually changing on account of war and unsettled conditions, 
and we have to employ inexperienced delivery men and women 
on our routes nearly every day. Under such circumstances 
it is absolutely impossible for us to keep our accounts straight. 
Justice to our customers and to ourselves demands that we 
place our service on a cash basis and thereby eliminate loss, 
confusion and annoyance to both sides. 

The co-operation of the public in this move for conserva- 
tion will have our deep appreciation and inspire us to give the 
best service within our power. 

Our New Coupon Book and How to Use It 

To make this new arrangement as easy and convenient as 
possible for our patrons, we have issued a Coupon Book, 
with the coupons in convenient denominations. The prices of 
these books are $2.00, $5.00 and $10.00, and can be purchased 
from any of our delivery men or at the offices of our plants. 
Unused coupons will be redeemed for cash at their full face 

A plan of particular convenience for bachelors and such 
customers as are not at home during the day will be that of 
leaving the Coupon Book at the office of the laundry with 
with they do business. The laundry will deduct the necessary 
coupons to pay for the laundry each week and file the tickets. 
When the book is nearly used up the laundry will send the 
tickets and the book to the customer and inform him of the 
need of a new book. He can check the tickets against the 
book and thereby certify to the correctness of the charges. 
The advantage of this plan is that the laundry can be left at 
any residence with inconvenience or delay. 

We are confident that the plan we have adopted will soon 
become popular, by reason of its justness and absolute fair- 
ness, and that our relations with the public will be even more 
harmonious and pleasing than they have been in the past.

avoided. From your statement I do 
not think you appreciate this fact 
Tou say: 

"1 do not for a moment believe that 
enterprising citizens, in a country 
with such possibilities as ours, will be 
deterred from engaging In business or 
Industrial activities because they can 
Invest In 'tax-free Dominion securities 
yielding a comparatively low rate of 

Many of our citiseas are calling In 
their mortgage loans and selling out 
then- municipal and industrial secur- 
ities, and may do bo to an even more 
serious extent, because of the oppor- 
tunity they have to invest in tax-free 
Dominion securities, yielding a com- 
paratively high rate of Interest, via., 
IH per cent plus "X" in many in- 
dividual cases. "X" amounts to 5 per 
cent and even 10 per cent, making a 
total Investment return of 10 per cent 
or 15 per cent on Dominion Govern- 
ment securities. 

Will Check Industry 

The fact must be faced that Indus- 
trial and agricultural development 
will be checked and suppressed very 
materially until aueh time us the pro- 
posed great mass of II year hy. per 
cent non-callable tax-exempt bonds — 
which you are about to offer not only 
for new money, but to offer under 
conversion rights to the extent of some 
1850,000,000 more of the first and 
fourth loans of earlier maturities — 
have advanced in market price to a 
premium of some II per cent from 
the issue price. That Is, before this 
millstone is removed from the neck 
of Industry, there must be an appre- 
ciation in market value from the price 
obtained by the Government on bonds 
now outstanding and to be issued un- 
der the proposed terms of the forth- 
coming loan without any regard what- 
ever to the loan which will have to be 
mad* in lttS of perhaps 9171,000.0*0, 
provided the great majority of our in- 
experiences' small Investors shall be- 
come fully Informed of the respective 
real values of the Ave and fifteen year 
bonds and of the valuable conversion 
rights attached to their holdings of 
the five year bonds of loot year's loan. 

What of our refunding operations 
In regard to this important matter? 
You say: "I look forward to the period 
of our refunding operations after the 
war with the hope and expectation 
that if our Dominion securities are 
given the special privilege of tax 

to *T»*aa»r 

our annual interest charge* 
to our budget* 

inobte to expect cheaper 

to follow the war, 

by a 

other nations have alee recog- 
_ the advisability of reserving the 
right to retire their long term bond* 
at per Jwf ore maturity. We have no 
right to gamble with the possibility of 
our refunding operations taking place 
In any other market than our own. 
It Is. therefore. Incumbent upon us to 
so govern our financial policy that our 
refunding may be carried out smooth- 
ly at an early and advantageous op- 
portunity. I respectfully submit that 
the forthcoming loan should be made 
callable in whole or in part at par at 
gay time after the war, and the 
people of Canada would undoubtedly 
accept this provision a* being strongly 
la the national interest. 

Mo Refund for 10 Year* 

This Important feature was evident- 
ly not considered In the creation of 
f24l.000.000 IH per cent tax-exempt 
beads due 1017, In respect to which 
bo option of prior redemption at par 
hag boon retained. It Is obvious that 
no economical refunding, operation 
can be carried out until 11*7, or until 
the market price of these bonds shall 
have been advanced to perhafjs ill 
per cent of par. This fact has more 
recently been recognised by discrim- 
inating buyer*. Some $50,ooo,ooo of 
victory bonds have, been dealt with by 
the Stabilising Committee, and this Is 
not by any means entirely due to sell- 
ing pressure — It has been due rather 
to buying pressure, and the work of 
the committee In respect to 10 year 
bonds may be said rather to have been 
very largely dlrocted to holding down 
the market arlce by solicitation of 
sales to fill the buying orders. I am 
certainly of the opinion that If it 
were not for this and the expectation 
of an almost unlimited further supply 
of 15-year ty t per cent non-callable 
tax-exemption bonds, the market price 
of the 10 and- 20-year 5^ per cent, 
bonds and of the long term 5 per 
cent bonds would have very ma- 
terially advanced, with corresponding 
benefit to our Government finance. 

The Issue of another billion or even 
half billion 15-year 6V4 per cent non- 
callable tax-exempt bonds will make 
the position Incomparably more dim- 
cult of remedy, and seriously increase 
the difficulties of after war refunding. 

The refunding of our 1100,000,000 
of 6 per cent notes which mature in 
New York on October 1, 1119. should 
be accomplished with bonds which 
are taxable If owned In Canada. 125.- 
000,000 of 6 per cent bonds mature in 
New York on April 1, 1821: $256,000,- 
000 additional 6 per cent taxable 
bonds, of which' $60,000,000 were 
issued in New York, and are partially 
held in Canada, should either remain 
at 5 per cent plus "X" or he offered 
conversion Into 6ft per cent taxable 
bond*. Of the 1645,000,000 outstand- 
ing b% tax-exempt bonds, $230,000.- 
•00 mature In 1022, and It is Impor- 
tant that these should also bo refund- 
ed by taxable bonds. 

The Big Obstacle 

It is thus apparent that the most 
Important obstacle to the reduction of 
the value or the elimination of "X" 
lies in the existence of $69,000,000 of 
6ft per cent bonds, due 1927, and 
$241,000,000 of tH per cent bonds 
due 1917. These bonds have been sold 
and the tax-exemption privilege can- 
not be repudiated. The menace of 
"X" lies In the existence of this large 
Issue of 20-year bonds and the pro- 
posed offering of $500,000,000 of 15- 
year 6Vs per cent bonds with the at- 
tendant conversion privilege, which 
under the - terms of the respective 
Issues must be thrown open to at least 
$61,000,000 of 5 per cent bonds due 
In 192$ and $230,000,000 of 5ft per 
cent bonds due 1922, and $69,000,000 
of I ft per cent bonds due 1927. 

If $600,900,000 of 15-year 6ft per 
cent tax-exempt bonds are offered in 
November, we may then have out- 
standing about one billion dollars of 
16 and 20-year 6ft per cent non-call- 
able tax-exempt bond* This would 
make it almost impossible thereafter, 
economical^', to change our war loan 
policy to the basis of taxable bonds. 

Would it not be better arbitrarily 
to offer premiums and secure conver- 
sion of part at least of these 10 and 
00-year non-callable tax-exempt bonds 
Into taxable bonds with a great net 
saving to the Treasury of Canada?

par. with provision for the conversion 
of the 1»*7 and tttf 6ft per eant tax- 
exempt bonds at fair p i se n turns into 
taxable bond* a par. The I per eent 
tax-exempt bond* would undoubtedly. 
la a relatively short time, like the 
United States liberty f ft per cent 
tax -exempts, rise to a price of over 
par.. The damage eeoaelsaed by our 
mistaken policy would thus be kept 
within reasonable bounds and Cana- 
dian Government credit re-established 
on a 6ft per cent basis. 

The further depreciation In prop- 
erty and security values, which baa 
only begun to be felt aa a result of 
the Insidious and destructive influence 
of the unknown factor "X," will be 
checked and perhaps eliminated. The 
depreciation of values, due to a 6ft 
per dent Oovernment rate for long 
term bonds, alone is g/eat enough and 
serious enough to make It of moat 
vital Importance to escape the further 
undermining Influence of "X." 

Notwithstanding the groat strain 
which this war has brought upon the 
Oovernment of Great Britain, the 
Chancellor of the Exchequer and the 
bankers of Great Britain, working 
hand in hand, can Justly claim flrst 
place in the financial skill with which 
their war financing ha* been conduct- 
ed. The economic structure of Great 
Britain has been/ developed with sklU 
and foresight, and has stood the test 
of Ume. Great Britain has sold a 
limited amount of 4 per cent bonds 
at par, exempt from Income tax. but 
not from super-tax. simultaneously 
with the sale of fully taxable I per 
cent securities. But no critic success- 
fully may, contend that, notwithstand- 
ing the very large income taxes im- 
posed upon the British people, any 
purchaser of these bonds has received 
material exemption from taxes for 
which he has not fully paid the price 
when compared with his neighbor, 
who may have bought 5 per cent se- 
curities subject to all taxation. 

Tho Australian people have sub- 
scribed for fully aH many bonds p*r 
capita an the Canadian people, at the 
price of par and at 4% per cent tax- 
exempt, and their Government, recog- 
nizing the error of the policy of tax- 
exemption In Government finance, has 
now adopted the policy of financing by 
the issue of 5 per cent taxable secur- 
ities. . 

In respect of the annual Interest, 
approximately $40,000,000 on $750,- 
000,000 of domestic Issues now out- 
standing", you say: "It Is extremely Im- 
probable that we should derive more 
than $1,000,000 or at most $1,600,000 
additional revenue from the taxation 
of Income derived from this body of 

"Totally Inadequate" 

You estimate, therefore, that on ev- 
ery $40,000,000 of annual Interest in- 
come of the people of Canada, only 
$1,000,000 to $1,500,000 or 2 ft per 
cent to 3 %, per cent can be collected 
under the income tax act. If this 
estimate be correct, then It conclusive- 
ly proves that the amount which will 
be derived from the Income tax is 
totally Inadequate for our needs, and 
this fact constitutes a strong argu- 
ment against excepting the interest on 
the bonds from its Incidence and In 
favor of Increasing the tax. A vitally 
Important, fair and effective means of 
securing revenue Is available in a 
graduated income tax, provided that 
each and everyone of us is made to 
contribute Justly and fairly according 
to his respective ability a liberal por- 
tion of his current Income. 

After four years at war the returns 
from this source are not, to say the 
least, a source of substantial revenue, 
due largely to the fact that the Im- 
position of the tax was delayed for 
three years. 

The United States imposed an In- 
creased income tax the flrst year after 
they entered the war, and a commit- 
tee of tho Congress now in session has 
very wisely determined that their nor- 
mal tax for this year should be In- 
creased from 4 per cent to 12 per 

Oreat Britain has rightly Imposed 
very substantial taxes on all earnings 
in excess of £130 per year, and there 
Is In force today a minimum tax of 
11 per cent graduated to 62 ft per cent 
which shows that there is almost no 
exemption whatsoever on the Income 
derived by the people from the na- 
tional loans. 

Government's Duty 

It was and Is clearly the duty of the 
Government to insure that those who 
remain at home and participate In the 
benefits of the great Increase In our 
national wealth, resulting from the 
exploitation of our agricultural and 
other natural and Industrial resources 
and activities, provide and extinguish 
In a liberal measure from cur.ent rev- 
enue a most substantial part of the 
constantly increasing cost of carrying 
on the war. 

In your statement to the Canadian 
press on August 6th, you informed the 
Canadian people that they have "been 
able as a nation, not only to earn the 
entire cost of the war to date, but to 
make a very large national Increase 
in wealth as well." How much of 
these earnings and this increased na- 
tional wealth has been appropriated 
by the Government and used to defray 
the cost of the war? The Director of 
Public Information in a recent state- 
ment points out that during the two 
flsoal years to March 31st, 1818, there 
has been applied to war expenditures, 
by way of surplus of revenue over 
ordinary and capital outlays, the sum 
of $113,009,000. 

This amount Is probably less than 
our country will have to face each 
single year beginning with 1920 for 
interest and pensions alone. 

It Is quite evident, therefore, that 
the provision for war expenditure 
from the income of our people has 
to date been far too small and must 
be Increased not only In Justice to our 
army but as a necessary measure for 
the protection of the future economic 
welfare of our whole people. 

Lot us consider the position of a 
future finance minister submitting a 
budget to a parliament at a time when 
the safe depoeit vaults of Canada are 
filled with 5ft per cent long term tax- 
exempt bond*. Will that minister be 
able to approach the house with con- 
fidence, with a proposal materially to 
raise the Income tax. to Impose other 
taxes on invested capital, knowing 
that such action would Immediately 
dislocate and change the ratio which 
may then exist between the value of 
the largo holding* of Oovernment se- 
curities and all other forme of In- 
vested wealth representing the nerve- 
system oC the Industrial structure of 
the Dominion? Who knows how long

will add .to tho 
after war refunding. 

firmly dealt with now. the situa- 
tion la respect to our forthcoming and 
alt future loans will be clarified In- 
Of remaining clouded and ob- 

further, to demoralise the business 
of Canada or to nullify the graduated 
inepme tax by the creation of « bil- 
lion dollars or mors of long term non- 
callable bond*, bearing the rate of 5 ft 
per'cent plus "X." would be an out- 
rage and an attempt to play upon the 
financial Ignorance of the great ma- 
jority of the people who are to be 
asked to subscribe for the bonds. 

Our Government policy In war 
finance should have been to Issue our 
domestic loans to our own people, 
fully taxable, at a rate of interest fixed 
after careful deliberation. The fol- 
lowing matters should have been care- 
fully considered: 

Features Considered 

1. The rate of interest paid by our 
chartered banks for deposits — the 
Government's only real and tangible 
competitor — having regard to the 
large sum* of money involved. 

t. The compensation which should 
reasonably be paid by way of extra 
Interest for the use of money by the 
Government for a period of years as 
against the Interest paid on demand 
or short time deposits. 

$. The standard so flied as the 
"yield" or "basis" of Government 
bonds vitally affects the values of all 
real estate, securities and other prop- 
erty throughout the country, and 
whatever rate be so fixed must have 
an important and fundamental influ-' 
ence upon the industrial productive 
activities of- the country for many 
years to come. , 

4. It is not necessary to make inter- 
est rates unduly high in order to re- 
strict non-essenial production, other 
measures having been generally 
adopted and with (success by belliger- 
ent countries. 

6. An unduly high standard or scale 
of interest rates will cause hardship 
to insurance companies, financial in- 
stitutions and individuals with large 
holdings of long term securities ac- 
cumulated prior to the war. 

I. The Government should reserve 
power to facilitate its own refunding 
operations at lower interest rates 
after the war by retaining the right 
to call at par any or all outstanding 
bonds at any convenient time after 
termination of the war, 

7. Government finance should be 
carried out with economy and without 
fear of market conditions, external or 

$. Market and other conditions 
must be made to defer to Government 
finance and mould themselves to meet 
the Government requirements. 

If this had been done, there can 
be no question that all our war bonds 
could have been sold to our people at 
a rate to yield not exceeding 5ft per 
cent Tax exemption was not demand- 
ed, on the contrary, no income tax 
measure had been enacted until after 
our flrst three loans and even during 
the fourth many did not realixe that 

the Interest 

subscribed to the bond* 
*1 — Those who will be asked to lend to 
. the Government are Just aa willing to 
pay income tax on their Interest re- 
turn of I ft per cent aa they are to pay 
income tax on the I par coat allowed 
them by our chartered banks. 
. . fax guaupllns Wrong 

Tax exemption is wrong". Two 
wrongs have never made one right. 
There Is only one remedy for wrong;, 
and that is to correct It. The cost of 
correction ax small, the consequences 
of procrastination will be very great. 

All that Is needed Is courage and 
confidence on the part of the Gov- 
ernment—courage to face the realities 
of tho situation and confidence in the 
patriotism of the people. 

1 am not insensible to the claim 
which the Government haa to the 
wholehearted co-operation of all 
classes of our people in the carrying 
on of the war. and it Is in this spirit 
that I have ventured to bring to your 
notice conclusions which I am con- 
vinced reflect the mature Judgment of 
an overwhelming majority of our 
bankers and business men who have 
given careful consideration to the 
question at issue. 

In the hope of stimulating that free 
and full discussion which is the 
essence of democratic government, I 
am mailing copies of this letter to' the 
Right Honorable the Prime Minister, 
the members of the Senate, the House 
of Commons and to the press. 

I have the honor to be. sir, your 
obedient servant,

How Much Longer 
Can Germany Fight? 

We must beware of being too happy over the trouncing Germany is getting on the West- 
ern Front. Victory is coming, but the earlier we expect it the later it will arrive. 

While "we arc on the last lap and close to the winning post," to quote a French leader, 
at the same time we are reminded that it is in the last part of the race that a runner must 
make his supreme effort. ''Should the German military command decide to have the war 
carried into Germany and seek to delude the people into a frantic last resistance at or beyond 
the Rhine, upon the plea that they arc actually fighting for the Fatherland and to drive the 
invaders from the sacred soil," remarks The Boston American, "the Huns might prose- 
cute the war still for a long time to come." 

The leading article in THK LITERARY DIGEST this week— September 14th— care- 
fully weighs the result of the Allies' victorious push during the past several weeks and bal- 
ances against their successes a computation rri the further fighting strength of the German 
armies, drawn from various sources. This particle throws much light'upon the present rel- 
ative strength of both forces.

The Digest" Serves at Home and at The Front 

A recent dispatch from Canadian headquarters in 
France described the boys in the trenches as eager 
for news of the war, so much so that a dozen or 
more crowded together to read a single paper nar- 
rating the progress of the battles. We at home 
are no less anxious to learn how the fight is going 
as a whole and how our soldiers are distinguishing 
themselves and incidentally lending a poignant 

interest to the reports from the front. To know 
the whole truth about the great struggle in France 
and Flanders there is nothing so helpful as to 
read the weekly accounts in THE LITERARY

tative sources. You can first satisfy yourself of the 
actual facts in this way and then mail the magazine

Vancouver Meeting Prepares 
Resolution Asking for In-

tion, moved by Sergt.-Major James 
Robinson and seconded by Alderman 
Hoakln was passed unanimously: 

"Whereas the cost of living In the 
City of Vancouver in common with 
other parts of the Dominion of Can- 
ada has Increased greatly during the 
past year, and 

"Whereas the majority of the citi- 
zen soldiers of Vancouver and other 
places In B. C. have no other means 
of support for their wives and de- 
pendents than the allowance made by 
the Dominion Government and the 
Canadian Patriotic Fund, and •■» „ 

"Whereas the Canadian PatrioUo 
Fund officials have intimated in the 
public press that the allowances to the 
dependents of soldiers and sailors can- 
not b# increased from that sou roe. ana 

"Whereas the allowances now being 
paid to such dependents are insuffi- 
cient for their needs; 

"Be it -therefore resolved 6y this 
mass meeting that the Honorable the 
Prims Minister, Sir Robert Borden, be 
petitioned to introduce legislation 
which will increase the separation al- 
lowance to the wives and dependents 
of soldiers to 1100 per month."

Starting from Monday the citizens of Victoria will be called upon to support an 
appeal that will be made to create a fund t o establish Army Huts for the soldier 
boys in France. ' 

This drive is being conducted by the Knights of Columbus of Canada throughout 
the Dominion. 

The Sum Required Is $500,000 


Won't You help make it possible for all the boys to be inside? YOU— EVERY- 
BODY — can give something. Put your fighting dollars behind our fighting lads. Give 
them your loyal support, the help, comfort, care and consolation you would want if 
ydu were there.

Washington Opinion on Strat- 
egy of 'Marshal Foch Is That 
Limited Objectives Are 

WASHINGTON, Sept. 15.— Military 
observers here believe Oen. Foch 
plans each phase of offensive to 
i each some limited tactical position, 
while collectively the series of -blows 
will serve to keep the entire enemy 
defensive line in a state of perpetual 

Many officers believe this pur- 
pose will be shown more clearly as 
the Winter, sets In by pressure 
against the German lines all alone 
the front, to keep the enemy from 
stabilizing: his position and to 
keep his men from getting any rest. 
There is no question in the minds of 
these officers that the supreme com- 
mander is aiming at the morals of 
ths German army by these harassing 
tactics as much as he is at advance- 
ment of his own battle front. De- 
struction of the enemy army, after 
all, they say, Is the only certain way 
to military victory. 

General March, chief of staff, 
hinted today st a continued offen- 
sive by Gen. Pershing in the St. Mi- 
hlel front, His weekly conference 
with newspaper correspondents said 
elimination of the salient furnished s 
better bass "for future offensive 

All reports from the fighting sec- 
tions in France indicate ths same 
high spirit, the lack of pessimism, 
which has always characterised our 
troop* In France, and everyone gets 
Into the swing of It the minute he 
gets there. The quickness and rapid- 
ity with which they handled the 
fight at St. Mihiel is attributed not 
only to the fine staff work which 
brought it off, but ths Individual sol- 
dier himself. 

tacking official news of further 
advances by General Pershing's troops 
within ths salient, ths opinion that 
this movement baa already reached 
tha. immediate limits It was pi 
to attain, gained strength 

is considered entirely probable that 
the next move of the American army 
Is dependent upon the results of this 
offensive. An advance of any Impor- 
tance by the French will threaten the 
Ktabllity of the famous Chamin des 
Dames ridge and to a less extent, 
probably, will affect the Ht. Gobain 
Massif position which the new de- 
fences af the Germans seem to l<n 
based. Home observers expressed tho 
belief that today's attack might have 
the primary object of cutting behind 
St. Gobain forest. 

-Collapse of the German position at 
La Fere and I<aon would mean a con- 
siderable retirement and there Is 
every reason to expect, officers say, 
that Marshal Foch would take quirk 
advantage of the resultant confusion 
to press an encircling campaign 

against Metz itself, employing both 
General Pershing's army and the 
French forces at Verdun in develop- 
ment of the movement. In that evsnt 
a double American thrust is antici- 
pated, one in co-operation with the 
French east of Verdun, and the other 
aimed to pass Metz on the opposite

in the leading role. "Over the Top" 
wIR bo shown at the Variety for one 
week beginning tomorrow, and Mr. 
Murdoch fa planning; to make It one of 
the biggest event* In the history of 
his theatre, and will have special

Robert Gordon Anderson, the man 
who "discovered" Sergt. Arthur Guy

alongside Tommy Atkins for eighteen

not take thorn with him for tho 
son that ho believes ha married "ha* 
neat h his station." Tho young- eon 
grows up on a. ranch In tho bo un dless 
West and becomes the central figure 
la this drama of life. This character 
Is played by William Farnum. Over 
In England tho titled father, on learn- 
ing! of the death of his American wife, 
has married again and has another 
son — a dissipated, profligate young 

Throo'h a strange series of inci- 
dents tne half brothers are brought 
together on the Western ranch— one 
with deep resentment in his heart; 
the other, weak, and unconscious of 
the relationship. William Farnum, 
as the strong brother, begins tho 
reformation and regeneration of his 
weak relative, and this accomplished, 
sends him back to his people in Eng- 
land — a man.

has been entrusted the difficult task 
of impersonating the wonderful 
heroine In Metro's special production

"Tho Legion of Death" tells of Rus-

Alice Hegan Rico, 
among prominent Amer- 
ican novelists, probably 
stands as one of the foremost of those 
who have delineated in fascinating 
stories that particular type of Amer- 
ican life which centres intimately 
■bout families in small communities. 
She has written five books which are 
particularly known by tho public, 
these being "Mrs. Wlggs of the Cab- 
bage Patch." "Lovey Mary." "Sandy," 
"Captain June" and "Mr. Opp," most 
of which were serialised by the Cen- 
tury Company. 

"Sandy." which was published In 
1805, has now been adapted for the 
films and will be shown at the Royal 
Victoria tomorrow, Tuesday and Wed- 
nesday only. It should prove, as many 
film productions have already demon- 
strated, that artistic and successful 
screen productions can be made from 
thoroughly clean and delightful' 
stories of American life. "Sandy" has 
a particularly charming group of 
characters and a location loved at the 
outset. It is Kentucky, and the people 
of the story are the most charming of 

Ruth Nelson and Annette Fenton 
are charming young Southern girls. 
Sandy drifts into the community — a 
Scottish immigrant. Judge Hollis, Dr. 
Fenton and the others are likable 
characters, artistically pointed by 
Alice Hegan Rice. Jack Plckford will 
be seen In the film version as Sandy, 
and Louise Huff will portray Ruth 
Nelson. These two stars of the Para- 
mount have already offered some of 
the best co-starring productions taken 
from successful novels of American 
youthful life. It goes without saying 
that the combination of one of Mrs. 
Rice's best books and these popular 
young film players has been especially 
well chosen. The picture was pro- 
duced by the Lasky company under 
the direction of George Melford. The 
fine book suffers not at all through 
Miss Edith Kennedy's scenario. 


"H 1 s Excellency the 
Governor" Is likely to 
rival, in point of popu- 
larity, tho many excellent productions 
hitherto performed by the Red Cross 
Stock Company. Last evening a cap- 
acity house enjoyed the clever witti- 
cisms * and vthe embarrassing situa- 
tions with which the piece abounds, 
and more particularly the interpreta- 
tion and acting of the talented per- 
formers, of whom Victoria may well 
be proud. 

Miss Eva Hart as "Stella," a mem- 
ber of the Recherche Concert Party 
and a cousin to His Excellency, is add- 
ing to her enviable reputation In the 
present production. Her many word 
duels with Mrs. Bollngbroke. splen- 
didly portrayed by Mrs. Colin Cum- 
mins, create ' no end of amusement. 
Miss D. Stuart Robertson as Ethel, 
with whom everyone seems to fall in 
love, fills her allotted part with grace 
and charm. 

The other performers filled their 
allotted roles In a manner beyond 
criticism and it is doubtful whether 
a stronge roast has' ever been assem- 
bled for a local production. 

Mrs. Gertrude Huntley Green's Or- r 
chestra, conducted by Mr. F. Schl, de- 
lights the patrons each evening with 
their beautiful renditions. Decidedly 
an acquisition of great merit, the 
talented members add in no small 
measure to the success of an excellent 
evening's entertainment. 

In producing "His Excellency the 
Governor,"" Mr. Hlncks has again 
demonstrated hlB ability as a producer 
of drama, of which he may justly be 
proud. Capacity houses are predicted 
at each of the three remaining per- 
formances and the funds of the Red 
Cross Society will once again be large- 
ly augmented as the result of the 
patriotic efforts of the talented com- 


The programme of Pantages vaude- 
ville which will be shown this week, 
commencing Wednesday afternoon, 
will be marked by the wide variety of 
the acts. Tabloid musical comedy In 
its most engaging fbrm, it is said, will 
be the headline feature. Aside from 
being sumptuously mounted, several 
specialties add Interest to the rich 
comedy and lilting musical numbers. 

"The Three Grouch Killers," Miller, 
Packer and Selx, come by their title 
honestly, as the audiences will be con- 
vinced; Wheeler and Potter have a 
singing and talking diversion; "The 
Red Fox Trot" Is a dancing comedy 
skit with an abundance of snap; the 
Norvelles are an artistic novelty and 
the famous talking and thinking birds. 
"Jackie and Billy," make an entertain- 
ment of outstanding interest. Be- 
sides, there will be a new chapter of 
"The Seven Pearls."

There are even people who fear a

Future of Europe 
What will be the future of Europe* 
Borne believe In the necessity for the) 
democratic Allies to organise them* 
•elves against an eventual resumption 
Of the Pan-German attempts at ag- 
gression. Others believe In the crea- 
tion of a society of nations that would 
assure peace to the world and liberty 
to nations. It to beyond doubt that e> 
society of nations, were It possible to 
create It, would be an Ideal solution. 
It must not be forgotten, however 
that already today, when the present 
war even is not ended, there are Ger» 
mans y/ho speak openly of the posst* 
bility and chances of a fresh struggle. 
' Therefore, for the settlement ol 
European relations, solutions must be 
sought which are calculated to pro- 
mote a society of nations, but which* 
in any case, will be capable^ of pre- 
serving Europe from fresh dangers. 

The problem of the nationalities of 
Austria-Hungary must also be re- 
garded from this point of view. Well- 
informed and unprejudiced observers 
cannot but perceive that the liberation 
of these nationalities Is in complete 
accord with both the aims set forth. 
The primary condition for the creation 
of a society of nations is the libera- 
tion of oppressed nationalities. It is 
Impossible even to Imagine a society 
of nations while various nations in 
Central Europe remain subject to Ger- 
man-Magyar domination. Similarly 
It will be impossible to avert a fresh 
Pan-German menace if, in the mon- 
archy of the Hapsburgs, there is left 
at ths disposition of Germanism an- 
other great power always ready to 
serve its plans. If Western Europe 
falls *to see this, the fate of the op- 
pressed nationalities will be sealed 
forever, but the consequences will be 
equally fatal for it also. Happily the 
declarations of eminent statesmen 
bear witness to the fact that the com- 
petent factors appraise the problem 
correctly. I^et us hope that public 
opinion In the Allied countries will 


2 As to the odious "balkantoatlon" of 
Europe, we beg incidentally to remark 
that the responsibility for the "bal- 
kanization" of the Balkans them- 
selves devolves above all upon 
Europe. It is a notorious fact that 
Austria-Hungary was always the 
chief Instigator of ths disorders In 
the Balkans. At the same time the 
relations between the nationalities of 
Austria-Hungary were of such a na-

Shipping, Men Object to Bap- 
tizing of New Vessels With 
Water — Egyptians Used to 

* Break Eggs, 

The Nautical Gazette denounces 
the. baptising of new vessels with 
wine lie the survival of a pagan cus- 
tom, that of making an offering to 
the gods before launching a ship. 
The editorial Is here reproduced: 

Quite naturally, the prohibition 
movement sweeping over this contin- 
ent has resulted In an agitation to 
use water in place of wine at ship 
launching*. The question of making 
such a substitution came up recently 
In Ontario, which hot long ago be- 
came one of the Dominion's dry 
provinces. Out of deference to the 
local temperance union, it was first 
Intimated that Lady Hearst, the wife 
of the provincial Premier, would 
break a bottle of water over the 
bows of the War Ontario at the time 
of the launching of that steamer. 
This led to a storm of protest/ on the 
part of the shipworkers, who appear 
to be as superstitious as sailors in 
this particular, and who. are reported 
to have declared that they would not 
work further on any vessel christen- 
ed with water. Consequently, When 
the actual launching took place, the 
time-honored ceremony was observed 
of spilling wine on the prow of the 
new ship. It is well known, of 
course, that this practice represents 
the survival of the old pagan cus- 
tom of making a votive offering to 
the gods upon the completion of a 
strip. Savage tribes have been known 
to shed human blood when a new 
canoe was ready to take to the 
waves, while the Norsemen used to 
attach human victims to the rollers 
upon which they launched their 
ships. The Turks sacrificed sheep 
last as their vessels were about to 
leave the ways, and the ancient 
Egyptians sought to propitiate their 
deities by breaking eggs upon thslr 
newly-constructed craft. The belief 
Of sailors that a vessel not christen- 
ed with wlhe will not have a pros- 
perous career to merely an unfound- 
ed superstition, as was evidenced In 
the aaaa of the Hartford, Admiral 
Earragut's flagship. When launched

Managing Editor of Woman's Homo 


As V reader with a fondheee for 
good Action and aa a woman with a 
fondness for pretty frocks, the way 
in, which man novelists draw their 
heroine* hu always had my particu- 
lar, attention, and, I am bound to 
confess, very frequently my highest 
respect — no, not for the clothes they 
describe, bat for the artful way they 
refrain from such description. When 
they do describe and describe in de- 
tail they too frequently succeed in 
being: excruciatingly funny. But most 
of thorn are content — more than con- 
tent — to leave dressmaking with 

Hopklnson Smith was an artist as 
well as a writer, and so he dared 
complete description. The picture he 
painted In words of Miss Nancy 
Carter, aunt and benefactress of the 
lovable, thriftless Colonel. Is as ex- 
quisite as any of his famous water 

^Sphere was the same old-fashioned 
«of^*fray silk with up and down 
stripe* spotted with sprigs of flow- 
ers," he says. "The lace cap with Its 
frill of narrow pink ribbons and two 
wide pink strings that fell over the 
shouldera. and the handkerchief of 
Indian mull folded acfcoas the breast 
and fastened with an amethyst pin. 
Her little bits of feet — they were lit- 
erally so — were Incased in white 
stockings and heelless morocco slip- 
pers bound with braid. . . . When 
uhe moved Hhe wafted toward you a 
perfume of sweet lavender. .... 
When you kliwed her, her cheek wu 
aa»eoft as a child's and fragrant with 
rose water." 

Are Women Bipeds? 

Dear and lovely Miss Nancy, in 
your gray nllk and Indian 'kerchief, 
your costume Is a charming thing to 
think of In these days when so many 
ladle*, both old and young, are v**' 
veallufc the defects which were con- 
cealed so long as they did not Insist 
on being blpeda. The khaki clad 
biped female, especially If Inclined 
to flesh, would never have got be^ 
twoen the covers of .a Hopklnson 
Smith book; we know that. 

Nevertheless, she has got between 
the covers of another book, and a 
book that Is mighty good reading, too 
—Stewart Edward White's "leopard 
Woman, "and Mr. White does't best-, 
tats to make fun of the figure thai 
she cuts. When that great hunter 
Kingozl first saw her and rescued 
her from the charging rhinoceros, 
Blbl-ya-chul was tumbled, out of her 
hammock, and when she got up 
Klngori observes that "the riding 
breeches were gathered trimly around 
an effeminately slender waist and 
then ballooned out -to an absurd 
width." Presently, bursting Into an 
unexpected laugh, Kingozl exclaims 
(the lady couldn't hear rs)m fortun- 
ately — too far away): "It, Isn't bal- 
loon breeches; it's hlps!'\ So he now 
knows that the stranger' is a woman! 
Tea In The Jangle 

But even a man author Isn't mean 
enough to leave a heroine dressed 
like this, so after they pitched < camp 
Blbl-ya-chul wears "a short sleeved 
lilac tea gown of thin silk* Viae silk 
stockings and high-heeled slippers. 
Her hair fell In two long. braids over 
her shoulders." She also has a band 
of woven gold about her forehead 
and a single strange Jewel hangs in 
the middle of her forehead. Of 
course, looking at the Jewel, one for- 
gets the hips. But that word "tea 
gown" — where did Mr. White get it? 
It has been obsolete for 20 years. 
Very likely he asked another man. 

Even with the tea gown Mr. White 
has progressed In dressmaking since 
he wrote "The Blazed Trail." Never 
onoe in that glorious story did he so 
much as hint at the style or color or 
the stuff of the clothes that Eliza- 
beth Carpenter wore. Flaying It very 

Mr. Winter's Modes 

Owen Wlster Is another who plays 
it safe when It comes to women folks' 
clothes. He does not even tell us 
what was the color of that dress 
which Mary Stark Wood, the "sin- 
cere spinster" of 'The Virginian." 
tore Into strips to bind the wounds 
of her lover when she found him 
wounded by the spring. Nor Is he a 
bit more communicative concerning 
that adorable Olrl Behind the Coun- 
ter In "Lady Baltimore." Neverthe- 
less, Mr. Wlster Is not unobservant 
of ladles' attire — he betrays that 
when he writes the description of 
Mrs. Weguelln St. Michael and Mrs. 
Gregory St. Michael, for this Is What 
he says: 

"Both wore their hair In a simple

with the dignity 
that such years call for. and I may 
mention -here that so ware all the 
ladle* above a J $ertain age In this 
tajm of, admirable old-faaniojasd pro- 
Ststy. In New 'York. In Boston, in 
Philadelphia, ladtes of 70 won't be 
'aid ladles any more; they're >anwul- 
Ing to wear their years avowedly la 
fiat dignity by their ftrsaldes, they 
bare their bosoms and gallop egregi- 
ously to the ballrooms of the young." 
This was written before the day of 
short skirts, or Mr. Wlster might 
well have added a feeling paragraph 
.on thai way the old ladies of 70 also 

I bare their ankles — and mors than 
their ankles. 
But that Is Indiscreet. And I must 
record, also that Mr. Wlster, while be 
avoids tucks, hems and ruffles, 1* 
perfectly able to get,- effect. 'jFor 
Instance, he calls Hortense Rleppe a 
"steel wasp." and as a complete de- 
scription ojf that lady, face and fig- 
ure, clothes antf, character, heart -and 
soul, It is superfectlon. I know 
Of no other so briefly felicitous. 

Her Feet Beneath Her Petticoat * 

Mr. Wister deigns to mention the 
very small,wtilte shoes of. Kitty. Hor-i 
tense's flr*end;,who was so. much di- 
vorced.' Here the ' novelist * betrays a 
common masculine weakness. Mr. 
Tarklngton, too, has mors' than' once 
extolled small, shapely slippers with 
small fast hidden inside them. 
■j Jfefen so, Mr, Tarklngton. like Mr. 
Wlster too frequently plays it safe, 
and lets a pretty .phrase /conceal his 
ignorance Of flounces. Witness what 
he 'say* of Franchon Beraud ' that she 
was '"W gone In .taffetas," and of 
Betty Carewe that ' "her little lace 
gaunt let ted gloves were placed In his 
hadd and.her .white slipper shimmer- 
ed Out from the 'lilac flounces of. her 
dress," And there Is Helen Sherwood 
of The Gentleman Prom Indiana. 
Listen to this bit about slipper and 

"His glance rested on the bank: 
but. Its diameter included the edge of 
her white skirt and the tip of a 
little white high-heeled slipper that 
peeped out beneath It." 

On another page this same Helen 
Is "a divinity In a pink shirtwaist and 
hat that was woven of gauzy cloud 
by mocking fairies." Really, Mr.- 
Tarklngton Is; this sort of thing quite 
fair; to women who have to buy hats 
of Leghorn or Milan or other prosaic, 
straw? And aren't you simply dodg- 
ing the sort of hat Helen really 

And there's Henry Sytoor Harrl. 
eon. who tells us briefly thai the .' 
kuaaaa* sasktng Angela wore a blue ' 
serge suit and a black hat with a 
yellow wing, and thereby betrays his 
•iaecuUne iansgjmce of millinery. X 
don't believe that It could have been 
■a yellow wind! S A yellow ■flower, or 
V yellow feather, yes — bat yellow 
wings are as scarce la women's head- 
gear aa they are omnipresent en live 
canaries. Probably It waa one of the 
"new beige tones" or a "warm tan." 
and Mr. Harrison didn't know any 
better than to call It yellow. At any 
rate, he says nothing ' else about 
Angela's clothes, and hs Is very re- 
ticent Indeed about the gowns that 
spoiled and petted creature Carlisle 
Heth even when he assures us that? 
all the' other women were, murmur- 
ing. "I never saw Cally look so well." 
He does say; though, that "a mode 
which defies the figure with some 
truthfulness held no terrors for her. 
Quite the contrary." Cally wee evi^ 
dently created before' the day of 
straight fronts. 

What Eleanor Had On 

There Is squal canny vagueness In 
Ernest Poole's descriptions of Eleanor 
In The Harbor. Eleanor once looks 
out "from under the brim of her soft 
white hat," and then again she wae 
"always smartly dressed, but tonight 
she had outdone herself. From her 
trim blue satin slippers" (slippers 
again, you see) "to the demure little 
band of blue at her throat she was 
more enchantingly fresh than ever." 

There's something about that "band 
of blue at her throat" that doesn't 
ring true. You made that up, Mr. 
Poole. Mrs. Poole, whom I have often 
seen, couldn't have told you to tie a 
demure blue band around Eleanor's 
throat, because Mrs. Poole answers to 
the' first phrase In that paragraph — 
she is always "smartly dressed." Bet- 
ter get her to edit your heroine's 
neckwear after this if you want to 
be a real realist. 

H. C. Wells Is Beau Nash 

Of all the English novelists the 
omniscient Wells writes best about 
women's clothes, yet he does It In a 
bold masculine way. There are nu- 
ances he doesn't reach, certainly. He 
alienates a great deal of feminine 
sympathy from Isabel Rivera (of The 
New Machlavelll) when he puts her 
In a -blue smock and has her call 
Remington "Master." Once upon a 
time I went back stage after the con- 
cert of a popular baritone and listened 
to the women crowding around him 
and saying ','0 dear Maestro, you were 

William Farnum, who is described as the dynamic and ever-thrilling star of 
the William Fox productions, is starred in "True Blue," this week's attraction 

at the Dominion. 

Margaret Schofleld, sister of Pen- 
rod, once wears a "long, light blue 
military cape" (probably dull blue or 
gray blue— *-I hope so), and I wish I 
could remember whether or not Mr. 
Tarklngton actually described Mary 
in The Turmoil as wearing a very old 
blue dress when that cat of a Sybil 
came to dress her and to stick pins 
In her. It was so In he illustration 
that Mr. Chambers made for It, and 
a more perfect illustration I never 
hope to see. There sat Mary In a 
dress that was really an old blue 
thing such as we all have hanging 
In the backs of our wardrobes, but It 
couldn't dim her loveliness or her 
grace. And there sat Sybil, crisp In 
an expensive, badly chosen, tailored 
suit and aggressive white spats and a 
hat that shrieked style and cost, but 
despite it all so hopelessly common.

wonderful* and "Dear Maestro" this 
and "Dear Maestro" that, and the poor 
man stood there looking hunted and 
unhappy — though 1 Buspect that he 
would have been furious if no one 
had taken the trouble to come round 
and Maestro him at all — and It was 
all somehow so fake*rlsh and cheap. 
So with Isabel River's smock. But it 
is almost the only sartorial lapse of 
which Mr. Wells is guilty. 

Classic is his description of Lady 
Beach -Mandarin's hat, seen from the 
bark, at Lady Harman's trial — "An 
uneaxy object like the smashed re- 
mains of a colossal box of bonbons 
riding out a gale." And Lady Har- 
man's dinner dress, "Black and gold 
with Just a touch of crimson In her 
hair," and Lady Harman's lurs, those 
heavy soft rich furs that Mr. Wells 
loves so much that he gives them to 
all his heroines. Daphne, in "Mar- 
riage," flaunts her prosperous black 
velvet with a huge black muff before 
Marjorle when Trafford's success had 
not yet been achieved. Marjorie her- 
self adores lovely clothes and bought 
them wisely, Mr. Wells convinces us. 
Margaret Remington had furs too, and 
dressed very well in soft blues and 
lavenders, while Altlora Bailey had 
"a gypsy splendor of black and red 
and silver all her own." 

Her Well Churned Hair 

Mr. Wells knows something about 
Jewels, too — but, then, what doesn't 
Mr. Wells know about? Listen to 
what he says of Lady Marayne: "A 
little diamond buckle on a black vel- 
vet band glittered between the two 
massee of butter colored hair that 
flowed jback from her forehead. . . 
her shapely little shoulders and her 
shapely little arms came decidedly 
but pleasantly out of a softness and 
sparkle of white and silver and old 
rose." Mr. Wells doesn't hesitate to 
combine colore, you see. Amanda of 
the dusky hair put on a cloak that had 
"a touch of the pirate about It" and 
stuck a light knitted cap of scarlet 
on hsr kaa*.

Taffeta Only 

In his cheerful lnnpcence Mr. Ben- 
nett tells us, moreover, that this 
costume of the wayard Sophia's was 
"not too special for either afternoon 
or evening, for either warm or cold 
weather." Poor Mr. Bennett — and 
poor Sophia, if she was doomed to 
light blue taffeta for all times and 
occasions! And what d'you mean, In 
basques ? 

I have saved the best until the last 
The best is W. L George, who, when 
he takes needle in hand and clothes 
the women of his boks which a mall 
an exactness of detail which a mail 
order catalogue might envy. Mr. 
George is. I believe, the .only living 
writer who sets himself up as know- 
ing everything about women. He is 
always speaking his mind, flatly and 
frankly, concerning the weaker sex, 
and that it is the weaker he has not 
the slightest doubt. How much of 
this is sincere and how much of it Is 
a clever seeking of publicity I would 
not dare to say, but I suspect most 
of it is the latter. Too often he writes 
aa one who has said to himself. "Now 
Bennett and Wells and Shaw and 
Chesterton each has his separate lay, 
and if I don't get hold of something 
distinctive and controversial Til bo 
Just in the common ruck of young 
English writers. Aha — women! I'll 
do the knowing superior to them in 
a meticulous way — quite unlike 
Shaw's broad slashes. It'll male the 
little dears perfectly furious, and 
they'll read my books forever and 
ever, amen." 


Accordingly he did It. But this is 
getting away from Mr. George's 
dressmaking. Behold 8ue, In The 
Stranger's Wedding, dressed for her 
first dinner party. "She wore the 
draped evening frock of the day made 
mainly of cream ninon, with a char- 
meuse Bilk underskirt, cream also, 
thinly striped with orange; the hips 
were draped In orange chiffon, which 
ran up under the corselet and repeat- 
ed Itself In touches under the short 
sleeves. . . . The orange and gold 
band which the Russian ballet had 
Inspired, lay perilously low across her 
breast. . . . . little black shoes and 
cream stockings with which clashed 
buckles of orange Russian enamel." 

Now this is sartorial vaudeville* 
nothing more, and yet Mr. George as- 
sures us that Sue's dress was chosen 
by her charming and cultured friend 
Theresa, who later stole Sue's hue- 
band from her. (Maybe the selection 
of this cream and orange horror was 
the beginning of Theresa's plot.) As 
for Theresa herself, at the same din- 
ner, she appeared "Very thin, very 
long-armed, very white In a black 
silk gown with a waist, touched in 
unexpected places with little rosettes 
of red and silver." These "unexpect- 
ed places," Mr. George goes on to 
say, were at the breast and knees. 
It does not sound seductive — It sounds 
like a country dreaemaker. 

And then there was Grace In The 
Second Blooming. Oraoe goes on a 
sartorial spree, and among other 
things beys herself a "wonderful 
drese. a drees of dreams." Here Is 
Its description. No. I did not make K 
up. Ton will find It on page #7. Any 
woman who can read It without either 
tears of pity ' or screams of laughter 
ought to be condemned to 
alls far her life.

that when she walked, her limbs free, 
she seemed to undulate. From waiHt 
to breast she hung in the broad girdle 
of blue and silver. The long narrow 
sleeve of heavy green satin made an 
cloudlike material of the skirt. When 
It came home she thrilled, as for the 
first time she put It on. Its clasp wan 
warm and exciting as the embrace of

German honesty haa not stood tha

to tttrntah a tag f or a patriotic speech; 
but when you get down to tha plain 
facts in life, you find a very different 
story- R haa gone to piece* along 
three different lines, all of which can

writers no longer exists; allied to this 
Is the breakdown of the official clan, 
now amenable to bribery from top to 
bottom. Another Is the universal dis- 
regard of war regulations; a curious 
lign of disintegration, for If any 
people In tha world have been con* 
■istently docile to authority It Is tha 
German. The third. Which will be 
briefly noticed here, la the great In-

absurd understatement In view of the 
compensation paid. It admitted, 
however, that the posts were also 
worked by organized bands of thieves 
from outside, and that thefts from the 
post had become an 'epidemic." 
One form it takes is the pillaging of 
letter boxes; on one night in April 19 
plllarboxes were raided in Charlot- 
tenburg alone and the contents des- 
troyed after the stamps and any 
valuables had been removed. Evi- 
dently things are getting worse, for on 
Kay 28th the Frankfurter Zeitung 
wrote: "Public security la declining 
from ona month to another, and 
thefts In tha post and oh the rail- 
ways have become of daily occur- 
rence." The railways are worse than 
the post. No wagon containing food 
or other necessaries can. It Is said, be 
left unguarded anywhere. Goods 
trains often arrive at their destination 
with every truck a good many hun- 
dredweight short of the load It started 
with. Thefts, says the Narddeutsche, 
have occurred up to the value of M. 
Sv.000 (f 4,000) at a time. Trains 
have bean held up and * plundered 
wholesale by armed robbers. Official 
figures tell their own story. In IB 17

a complaint heard on all sides — of 
the laxity of the police, who fail to 
trace even live per cent of the 
criminals. The police are either 
standing in or have broken down; the 
KolnlsVhe Zeitung has said that both 
robbery and murder are how . com- 
mitted In broad daylight and in the 
open street. Certainly In both Berlin 
and Frankfort the police have had 
to be reinforced by military patrols. 
Traffic has apparently become unsafe; 
in Berlin in March teams of horses 
were stolen in the streets, and mach- 
inery was stolen from munition fac- 
tories; in April an official order had 
to be issued that no corn or flour 
should be moved through the streets 
after dark. Dogs have been trained 
to guard the Cabs, to prevent the 
horses being stolen. The Berlin Zei- 
tung am Mtttag, In an article wel- 
coming the appearance of the mili- 
tary on police work, said: "Things 
have now reached such a pass that 
a policeman patrolling the streets 
alone la no longer sure of his own 
life. In any case, guerilla warfare In 
the street*. of Berlin must be suppres- 
sed at all Costa." Doubtless It can- be 
suppressed; but the whole of the vast 
criminal population of Berlin is said 
to be now well armed, and is ap- 
parently in the mood to wage "fresh 
and Joyc-us war" on the home front. 
Juvenile Crime 
The thing that 'ii* really alarming 
the German authorities Is tha enor- 
mous increase of crime among chil- 
dren, even murders are not uncom- 
mon. Tha daily average of children 
sentenced to Imprisonment in Prussia 
rose from 874 in 1919 to43B In 1917. 
and the Minister of Justice, Herr 
Spahn, has characterised these figures 
aa "extraordinarily grave." At Due- 
aeldorf the number of children con- 
victed rose from 979 In 1914 to 9.400 
in the drat six months of 1917. Tha

Of the Handley-Page Aero- 
plane Works, of London. England. 
who H touring the United 8tatea In 
an lamietow following his address at 
Us> fThemher of Commerce in 8t. 
Louis. Mo. Mr Workman Insisted that 
city waa an excellent place to build a 
part of the great air teat and that 
planes could riaa from the banks of 
the Msnrteatppi there and be la France 
four dayg-later. 

Mr. Workman heartily favors the 
measure recently Introduced la Con- 
gress by Senator Reed of Missouri pro- 
viding for a new cabinet minister to 
have charge of tha air force and tha 
air production of America. "It hi the 
only thing to do," he explained. "The 
aviation section la ths future must be 
o« a gigantic scale and the direction 
of it should be. taken from the army 
and navy. A x secretary of the air 
should now be working to eead aa im- 
mense fleet of planes to France. It 
will take tha entire time of one direct- 
ing head and hie assistants. England 
aad France (have seen this. England 
haa the Royal Air Corps, and France 
the Service Technique. 

"Planes built here or in Dayton or 
anywhere la the Middle West can 
reach N e w fou ndland in the air in two 
days," said Mr. Workman. "From 
Newfoundland they can fly to the 
Aaoree In one day. and on tha fourth 
day the voyage to France can be com- 
pleted. If tha planes are sent to 
France in ships. It will require 8,000,- 
000 tons of shipping apace for them 
and their accessories. It wikT be im- 
possible to have them reach France by 
chip In time to deliver the deciding 
blow ay June, 1919. They must be 
sent over under their own power. The 
type of machine that I propose be 
used la transatlantic flights is tha 

Bomb Carrier Type 
Mr. Workman explained that bomb 
carriers of this type. If 10.900 cf them 
were available, could drop 94,900 tons 
of, high explosives on Germany and 
the German artillery and transport or- 
ganisation every 34 hours. The ma- 
chines are equipped with four motors 
of 6000 H.P. each and develop about 
1204 B.P.M. of the propeller. The 
speed Is 140 miles par hour aad they 
reach aa altitude of 10,000 feet when 
fully loaded. These machines make a 
continuous flight of II hours' duration 
under a full load, and weigh 18 tons. 
"Tola machine." explained Mr. 
Workman, "can carry Its full military 
load aad fly across the Atlantic and 
have a factor of safety of 
three full hours. ' I would 
suggest that In flying them 
across the Governments of America 
and England co-operate for further 
safety In the following manner: Use 
obsolete destroyers and lightships, sta- 
tioning them 100 miles apart so that 
the air pilots need never be out of 
4 right of tbe ship he has passed or 
tie ship he is approaching. While this 
is not absolutely necessary, It will 
.eliminate all danger of loss of aircraft 
and flyers." 

Would Abandon idberty motor 
Mr. Workman announced that the 
Handley-Page concern of England was 
ready to send aa entire technical staff 
to America to supervise the building 
of plants to make the planes. This 
plan would mean the abandonment of 
the Liberty motor and the adoption of 
the English design. Mr. Workman 
stated that the Liberty motor waa 
Ideal for the bombing type of plane 
that is now in use. but claimed that 
there was some doubt as to Its being 
able to withstand the strain of 110 
hou^s pf flying necessary to carry the 
plane from America to Prance and 
than be la serviceable condition. 

"I do net believe It is within the 
power of any aeronautical engineer In 
this country at present to design and 
develop and then produce 10,000 bomb- 
ing planes by May 1 that will equal 
the British type we now use. We ought 
to sink our national pride and be sat- 
isfied with a foreign design if it will 
do the work wanted. We can make 
it of American materials, use Ameri- 
can labor mid drive it over with Am- 
erioaas an flyers. We can carry it 
through to victory ae aa .American 

It was explained that Handley Page 
would not expect or accept a regular 
designer's fee in case airplane fac- 
tories producing his machine were 
built In America. A nominal fee 
be decided upon later was tbe English 
man's suggestion. Mr. Workman Is an 
American, bet haa been manager of the 
Handley-Page Works for several years.

HK original scheme of 
the Grand TruriK Ta- 
clflc Railway contetn- 
p luted branch lines, 
one to extend .north- 
ward from seme point 
near Fort deorge, .to 
"tap" the vast Peace River country, 
and another to drive southward and 
westward to five connection with the 
Southern British Columbia coast ter- 
minals. Financial and other con- 
siderations rendering the consumma- 
tion of this scheme impossible, the 
Pgcfflc Great BJaatern Railway was 
projected to complete the obviously 
necessary transportation facilities re- 
quired by these districts. 

ttn present description of the route 
of the Pacific Great Eastern has 

brought us but to the threshold of^ 
the great country it originally was IrsF 
tended to serve. It Is not until Clin- 
ton Is reached that the vast "Interior" 
empire within Jtm < prjorylnoe la ap- 
proached, and what haa- bean , said of 
the country traversed T^pr this line so 
far, merely is preliminary to the ob- 
jectlves of the ultimata project. .This 
Is because "New British Columbia" 
consists of the extensive territory ly 
ing North of the, present lines of set- 
tlement and present* practically vir- 
gin boII for agricultural and other In- 
dustrial development. 

The route of travel into the Peace 
River country now Is by way of Ed- 
monton to Dunvegan, thence to Peace 
Rlvar Crossing and on Into the un- 
tamed Northland. From Dunvegan 
to Peace River Crossing is 70 miles 
and, during the* summer, from May to 
October, excellent steamer travel and 
transportation are possible. From 
the "Crossing" to Fort St. John is 
200 miles and the same steamers ply 
40 miles farther Northwestward to 
Hudson's Hope, the present extreme 
Northern point of settlement. 

It Is estimated that there are 10,- 
000.000 Hcres of arable land within 
the boundaries of the province In this 
"corner." It Includes the valley of the 
Peace River from Hudson's Hope to 
Its head, and also the great valleys of 
the Parsnip and Flndlay Rivers, to- 
gether with the valleys of their many 
tributaries. In all this vast expanse 
mixed farming will develop rapidly as 
*oon as market facilities are Available. 
It Is intended to bring the consider- 
able commerce that Inevitably must 
develop in this section, to the coast 
cities and markets and. the Pacific 
Great Eastern Railway is the only 
route surveyed, or likely to be pro- 
tected Into this area. 

From Kelly Lake — the highest point 
on the Pacific Great Eastern Railway 
— the line descends a gradual slope to 
Clinton, reaching, at this point, the 
great "plateau" chaaracterlatlc of the 
central part of the province between 
I he Selkirk ,and Cascade mountain 
ranges. The route follows the plateau 
.intll it reaches the well-watered and 
Inviting ranges around Quesnei. and 
opening up the rlchayalleys and slopes 
which lie both East and West of the 
route. At present the most conven- 
ient means of transportation between 
this point and Fort George is by 
water, serviceable, of course, only 
during Bummer months.

mineral resources as yet undiscovered, 
and much that has been- discovered

railway transportation will make less

described as considerable in compari-

The barren area is not large relatively, 
and though there are many thousandu

do not characterize the great interior 

Nor must it be assumed that the

The Chilcottn district, famed be- 
cause of its stock ranges, lies West of 
the valley of the Kraser, extending 
fifty inlle« sijuarc, between Soda Creek 
and Chlleotin Klver. The altitude of 
the Kraser at this distance is 1,400 
feet, and the slopes rise to an altitude 
of 2,600 feet in the valley of the Chll- 
eotin and to the plateau to 3.400 feet. 
This section of the country is rolling 
and "hummocky," some five or six 
rivers draining Eastward into the 
Fraser. The summers begin early in 
May and last well to the end of Sept- 
ember. No Mcrious attempts have 
been made with dry-farnilng to de- 
monstrate its practicability. Nature 
seemingly Intended the area for stock 
grazing, to which use it is being put 
with Increasing advantage and profit 
from year to year. Nearly similar 
conditions exist on the Kast of the 
Kraser, though from Quesnei North- 
ward the agricultural possibilities de- 
velop rapidly- 

In the valley of the Nechaco Illver 
the country Is flat. caovercd with 
patches of small trees, with prairies 
of considerable extent, on which flour- 
ish the greatest variety of. nutrient 
grasses. To the north of the Nechaco 
hirge areas have been burned and now 
are covered with luxuriant nieadows. 
Kant of the Kraser Valley there is a 
wide strip of burned-off land the soil 

of which is a fine clay loam, or clayey 
silt. Where the top soil has not been 
cremated this land Is very fertile. 

Broken as is the country here, with 
top reaches unarable. the whole being 
a continuation of the "dry belt," 
numerous large tracts are designated 
as admirably suitable for agricultural 
production. In the blllooet, Cariboo 
and Kort Ceorg ej ystrlcts a series of 
adapted., districts' already have been 
made available for easy settlement In 
parts of the province that will be 
served \by the Pacific Creat Kastern 
Railway. These aggregate an area of 
nearly half a million acres, without 
describing the two million acres con- 
tiguous to the Grand Trunk Pacific 
Railway. And this is entirely without 
any trespass upon lands known as the 
Peace River district. 

Large tracts of the best of these 
lands have been surveyed and ar-

of his interests that others besides 
himself should know the exact where- 
abouts of this ore. Incidentally he 
told of several localities in which

showing to warrant the most careful 

Perhaps the most striking example 
of the existence of unsuspected possi- 
bilities is afforded by a well authenti- 
cated case at Clinton. Not more than 
a mile out of the town of Clinton 
there is a circular lake, or large pond, 
sparkling In daytime and Irrldescent 
at night. The sheet of smooth water 
Is not more than a mile in circum- 
ference and apparently not very deep. 
A couple of feet beneath its placid sur- 
face Is a brownish crust, giving a 
nearly even and solid appearance to 
the bed of the lake. 

How many years this unusual for- 
mation has been the subject of specu- 
lation by settlers, visitors and "ex- 
perts" may not be told. A couple of 
years ago, however, a shrewd "Yan- 
kee" had the curiosity to have a sam- 
ple of the crystallized formation con- 
stituting the apparent "bottom" of the 
lake analyzed. He found it consisted 
of 90 per cent, pure Epsom salts. 

Now he Is operating a small plant, 
taking the encrusted crystallzatton out 
of the water, drying It in bulk — in 
great corded piles — on the shore, sack- 

ing the dried crystals, shipping them 
to a refinery, from which the real 
simon pure Epsom salts Is sent out to 
cool the blood and do other things for 
an overheated public. 

It Is estimated that there are thirty- 
five thousand tons of this mineral 
available, though only a beginning haa 
been made at the salvage of the valu- 
able "deposit." 

Along the line of the Pacific Great 
Eastern railway there are several de- 
posits of carbonates of soda and, 
though not pure enough to be mar- 
keted as soda carbonate, , if . agid to 
have a value of" ft to »10 per ton in 
Its crude condition. Samples of car- 
bonatajof lime analysing 99.6 per cent 
pure nave been taken out of large 
deposits of similar mineral. 

In the Alta Lake section there are 
large deposits of oxide of Iron re- 
quiring only the Installation of blast 
furnaces to reduce thera to Commer- 
cial products. 

These instances show that, notwith- 
standing the existence of departmen- 
tal machinery and expert staff, the 
true wealth of province will be dis- 
covered only when the old-time "pros- 
pector" with modern equipment, the 
privations of his calling somewhat 
modified by present conditions, under- 
takes the task and discloses— as was 
the case in early days — the natural 
riches of this still "unexplored" 
territory. (Concluded)

I sent ydu both postcards, as we are 
not allowed, to write much of any-

postcards are held up, so do not 
know If they ever reached you. 

"We were one week in London, 
and then broken up Into units of 
four or six and sent all over Eng- 
land. Then on July 3 we were gath- 
ered together again and sent to 
France. A few days in one city, 
then broken up again and sent all 
over France. I am the only one of 
the hundred in No. 24 General Hos- 
pital, B. E. F.. France, and may be 
moved again sot . One thing Is 
comforting. It Is very cool and 
right on the salt water, and I am 
grateful for that mercy. 

"Quite near there Is a Canadian 
Hospital. Fielding Mcleaac was a 
medical officer (captain) there, and 
a great favorite. He waa killed by 
a bomb on June 4, three Canadian 
nurses being killed at the same time. 
Most of the units come from Nova 
Scotia. I visited poor Fielding's 
grave. He is buried beside the 
nurses in a little cemetery about ten 
minutes' walk from where 1 live. 

"One day I saw a IT. S. M. ambu- 
lance train on a siding near the 
beach, so I ran up to it and called. 
Three boys came out, and we had 
quite a chat. One was from Okla- 
homa, one from New Jersey and one 
from Arkansas, but they might all 
have been brought up on the same 
block the way they chatted and ex- 
changed Items. A Chicago unit has 
« hospital about three miles from 
here. We walked over one after- 
noon and had supper with the girls. 

"I wish you could see the nearest 
village to this hospital — all shot to 
pieces and mostly evacuated; but a 
few old men and women and little 
children still remain and work In the 
fields or do washing for the soldiers. 
. . . The French people manage to 
have flowers even though the roof 
may be blown off their houses. They 
are wonderful people. 

"I met a group of German prison- 
ers the other day being marched 
past. The young boys were not bad 
looking, but the middle-aged men 
were very hard looking specimens,

waa about two yards from me. It

Lieut. C. G. Birns was killed in ac- 
tion on September 2, 1918. He was 
employed by the law firm of Tait, 
Brandon & Hall, of this city when the 
war broke out, and left here in Sep- 
tember. 1914, with the 16th Battalion 
as a private. With this battalion he 
went to France and was in the firing 
line until February, 1917, when he 
was sent to England for an officer's 
training course at Bexhlll. Receiv- 
ing his lieutenancy In June of the 
same year he was attached to the 14th 
Reserve Battalion, Shorncllffe, as an 
Instructor. He rejoined his battalion 
in France in June, 1918. Until he was 
killed In September he had never 
suffered a wound. 

Twenty-seven years of age, Lieut. 
Birns was born at Hamilton, Ontario, 
where his parents still live. His fa- 
ther waa a member of the famous 13th 
Regiment Band of Hamilton.

played ice hockey during 1913 with 
the Victoria amateur ice hockey team, 
and also had a tryout with the Vic-

excellent garage and hotel facilities, 
all attained through man's labor, co- 
operate with the creations of nature 
to provide the ideal holiday in the 
finest climate in the world. 

The Island Automobile Association 
has persiBtenly boosted the highway, 
and through its efforts new and bet- 
ter roads have been obtained, infor- 
mation signs have been put up, and 
literature has been published to aid 
the traveller. 

What Is the Highway? 

Through the Island Automobile 
Association the following facts about 
the highway have^been obtained, and 
are here given, so that those plan- 
ning a trip may know Just what the 
Island has to offer and what prepa- 
rations must be made. 

The Island Highway extends from 
Victoria to Campbell Kiver, while 
the Canadian Highway reaches from 
Nanaimo to Great Central Lake, run- 
ning parallel with the Island High- 
way from Nanaimo to Parksvllle. 

Known internationally for Its 
magnificent scenery. the highway 
is greatly patronized by motorists 
both from the Mainland and the 

Length of the Trip 

The length of time spent In making 
the trip depends entirely upon the 
motorist, some making it In three 
days and others taking a week. It is 
best to go to Campbell River, double 
back to Parksvllle, and then take the 
trip to Great Central Lake. There 
is a cutoff road just the other side 
of Parksvllle which will save a few 
miles in getting on the Albernl road. 

Armed with a spare tire and copies 
of the logs and maps, the motorist 
leaves Victoria, and, watching his 
speedometer at Intervals, he compares 
it with the log and thus finds when 
to turn, and also the names of the

Up above the Willows Hotsl at 
Campbell River there Is a stretch of 
road extending 20 miles in virgin 
country where people are seldom 
seen. This road is not part of the 
Island Highway, but Mr. Charles 
Harris, secretary of the Island Auto- 
mobile Association, says that the 
country up there is really beautiful. 
A chain of little lakes Is reached by 
thl» ' road, and Echo Lake, one of 
these, Is named after the cry of the 
loon, which sounds and resounds 
over the water. Mr. Harris got an 
old dugout at the lake on one trip 
and got over 20 fish In a morning. 

The Island Highway is. not ex- 
celled by any drive on the Main- 
land, and a vacation up the Island, 
Judging by past experiencea, makes 
any motorist the Island's most valued 
publicity agent.

Money Stringency Observable 
During Week Shows Modi- 
fied Tendency — Favorable 
War News Has Good Effect 

NEW YORK. Sept. L4.— With the 
stock market exhibiting a strong un- 
dertone for the first time this week, 
general recoveries featured the Sat- 
urday short session in trading. In- 
dications were clear that the strin- 
gency in money, to which was at- 
tributed the liquidation which has 
marked the retrograde movement of 
speculative issues had been modified 
at least to a limited extent, and this 
factor and the continued favorable 
war news, together with a marked 
rise in Liberty bonds, served to en- 
courage Investment buyers. 

Short coverings at the levels 
brought about by the recent break 
also contributed to the firmness and 
stocks generally ruled from 1 to 6 
points above yesterday's closing quo- 

General Electric and U. S. Alcohol 
scored the largest gains, each rising 
five points. United States Steel and 
other representative issues Including 
Reading. Southern Pacific and Can- 
adian Pacific rose between 1 and 2 
points, while some of the specialties 
which have been in the forefront of 
recent decline made even greater ad- 
vances. Sales amounted to 150,000 

Bonds maintained a good level in 
sympathy with the improvement in 
Liberty Issues. Total sales, par 
value, $4,9SO,000. 

U. S. bonds old Issues were un- 
changed on call for ttie week.

By Lieut. J. B. Morton 

"Fame will come to us In the end," 
said Michel Arouin. the French poet, 
to his friend the Artist. 

It was a hot Summer evening, and 
the two men sat outside a cafe at a 
small round table. A woman drinking 
near them smiled from time to time; 
but they were engrossed in dreams 
of their future, and of the fume they 
coveted so fiercely. 

Both men were rather over middle 
age. and their faces were stamped 
with that melancholy which is sup- 
posed to be the prerogative of genius 
They h*»-d narrow shi-ulders and pale 
complexions, and their eyes were rest- 
less, in the manner of all who are 
highly strung. Their mouth3 were 
sensitive, and had lines at the corners 
to betray the struggle that life was 
for them. 

Ladleti called Michel's face "inter- 
estitiK". they said he had a secret 
sorrow and needed a woman to under- 
stand him, a kindred spirit. Both 
men were dressed In shabby suits of 
black. Michel had a black felt hat, 
and Paul Bare!, the artist, a brown 
one. Their boots were cracked and 
down at heel, but their hands were 
white and soft like the hands rf wo- 
men. Thsy were Immensely vain of 
their hands. 

"Yes," said Michel, "Fame will 
surely come to us. It may be year3. 
We may not even live to see the glory 
we win. But our memories will be im- 
mortal. There will be tablets put up 
over the houses where we lived, with 
dates, and our names. People pass- 
ing will say. 'Just fancy, he actually 
live! here; had his meals In that 
room; came down these very steps to 
take his morning walk.' It is pleas- 
ant to think of such things." 

Paul sighed, "If ," he said. 

But Michel's enthusiasm raced on. 

"Tourists," he continued, "will make 
pilgrimages to our graves. People will 
remember little scraps of things about 
us. Those who knew us will tell 
stories of us, until, gradually, legends 
will grow up." 

"It is a pity," said Paul, "that fame 
comes so slowly. One longs to taste 
power, to be able to look back with 
a luxurious sigh on all these years of 
poverty and hardship." 

He looked sadly at his absinthe, and 
once more the Interesting gloom fell 
like a veil over their pale faces. And' 
while they drank and dreamed a tide 
of grey swept into Luxembourg, and 
there was a great thunder of guns. 

In the cool of an Autumn evening 
two British soldiers came by a wooded 
valley to a cemetery. Faded leaves 
whirled at their feet and their thoughts 
kept them silent. They followed the 
muddy pathway that led to the 
graves, and walked among the mounds 
each with Its unpretentious cross of 
wood. Presently they paused, and 
bent over a place where there were two 
mounds side by side. On the crosses 
there were no names, only a date, and 
under that "Mort pour la France."

After a Year of Investigation the Cunard Company 
Is Absolved From Paying Lusitania Damage

Of liability proceedings Instituted by 
the Cunard aEllllialUI Co.. Ltd., to 
«— m to damage actions aggregat- 
ing mllUona of dollars. The eaae hae 
been peadtag over a year. Those 
who sought recompenae for loss of 
Ufa, injury, or loss of property, con- 
tended the steamship was painted 
and appeared like a British Govern- 
ment transport; that ft carried muni- 
tions and high explosives and that ft 
was navigated Improperly In the war 
sons in Which It was sunk. The 
Canard Co., In turn, asked for lia- 
bility limitation on the ground that 
geary precaution had been taken and 
that It could not be adjudged liable 
for the loss of life or property or in- 
jury to passengers, stnes ths steam- 
ship was destroyed by a pirate. In a 
decision, which covers over forty 
typewritten pages. Judge , Mayer 
grants tho petition of ths company, 
having established the belief, after a 
year of Inquiry, that the steamship 
was not. and had never been armed; 
that shs carried no high explosives; 
that her equipment was In order be- 
yond criticism, and that her crew was 
of ths best calibre obtainable, con- 
sidering war conditions. It (a fur- 
ther set forth that the steamship 
When she left port on her laat voyage 
was undisguised and that her four 
funnels constituted a figure so dis- 
cernible as to make her f am liar not 
only to naval officers and mariners, 
but to the oceangoing public gener- 
ally. Although newapapsrs carried a 
warning advertisement by the Ger- 
man Government, which appeared on 
Saturday, May I, Isle, Judge Mayor 
finds that the owners and maaters of 
the Lusitania were Justified In be- 
lieving* that the humane principle of 
providing for ths safSty of passengers 
aboard, tho steamship would not be 
violated Id any ease. In the decision 
Judge Mayer says: . 

The Warning Advertisement 
"Few at that time would be likely 
to construe the warning advertise- 
ment as calling attention to more 
than the perils to be expected from 
quick disembarkation and the. possible 
rigors of ths sea after -the proper 
safeguarding of the lives of passen- 
gers by at least full opportunity to 
take to ths lifeboats. It Is of course 
easy now. in the light of many later 
events, added to preceding acts, to 
look back and say that the Cunard 
line and its captain should ' bars 
known that the German Government 
would authorise or permit so Shock- 
ing a breach of International law 
and so foul an offence not only 
against an enemy, but as wsU against 
peaceful citizens of a friendly nation. 
"The unexpected character of the 
act waa beet evidenced by the horror 
which It excited In the minds and 
hearts of the American people. The 
fault, therefore, must be told upon 
those who are responsible for the 
sinking of the vessel in the legal as 
well as moral sens*. It la. thsrefors. 
not the Cunard Line, petitioner, 
which must be held liable for the 
loos of life and property. The cause 
of the sinking of ths Lusitania waa 
ths Imperial German Government, 
acting through its instrument, the 
submarine commander, and violating 
a cherished and humans rule ob- 
served until this war by even the 
blttsrsst antagonists. As Lord Mer- 
sey said: — "Ths whole blame for the 
destruction of life In this catas- 
trophe must rest solely with those 
who plotted and with those who com- 
mitted the crime.' 

Where Reparation Should Be Sought 
"While In this tow suit there may 
be no recovery. It Is not to be 
doubted that ths United States of 
America and her Allies will well re- 
member the rights of those affected 
by the sinking of ths Lusitania, and 
when the time shall corns will see 
to It that reparation shall be made 
f r one of ths most indefensible acts 
e modern times. 

"The petition Is granted and the 

alms dismissed without costs." 
Judge May*/ quoted International 

ulw in declaring Germany guilty. 

1 i regard to American precedents he 
s Id: "These humane principles wsrs 
p aotlsed both In the war of 1812 
a id during our own war of ltfl- 
1 «5. Even with all the bitterness 
( iow happily ended and forgotten) 

all the difficulties of . having no 
to which to send a prise. Captain 
imes, of the Alabama, strictly ob- 
s rved the rule aa to ths human life." 
J idge Mayer praised the. passengers, 
s ylng: 

"The conduct of the passengers 
Itntea an enduring record of 
heroism, with many Individual 
sees of sacrifice and. In general, 
marked, consideration for women 
children. There waa no panic." 
The Judge's decision Includes the 
following observations: 

"On May 1. Ill*, the British pas- 
senger-carrying merchantman Lusi- 
tania sailed from New Tork, bound 
fet Liverpool with l.StT passengers 
and a orew of 7oa making a total 
of Mil souls on hoar d -men. women 
and children. At approximately t-AO

stitute tho record of the ease, it fa 
fortunate, for many reasons, that 
such a comprehensive Judlctal in- 
veotigatiea baa been had; for. In ad- 
dition to a mass of facts which aire 
opportunity for a clear understanding 
of the case to Its various aspects. 
the evidence presented has disposed 
without question and for all time, 
of any false claims brought forward 
to justify this Inexpressibly cowardly 
attack upon an unarmed passenger 
liner. ,

2,198 passengers and a crew of about 
850, or about 3,000 persons In all. 
She had XX open lifeboats capable of 
accommodating 1.122 persona; 2* 
callapslbte boats with a capacity of 
1,211, making a total of 48 boats 
a capacity for 2,605 In all, or sub- 
stantially in excess of the require- 
ments of her last voyage. Her total 
of Ufa belts was 3.187, or 1,959 more 
than the total number of passengers 
and. In addition, she carried 20 life 
buoys. She was classed 100 Al at 
Lloyd's, being- 787 feet long over all. 
with a tonnage of 30.395 gross and 
12,811 net. She had four turbine 
engines, 25 boilers, 4 boiler rooms, 
12 transverse bulkheads dividing her 
Into 13 compartments, with a long- 
itudinal bulkhead on either side of 
the ship for 425 feet, covering all 
vital parts. 
Unarmed and Carried No Explosives 

"The proof Is absolute that she was 
not and never had been armed, nor 
did she carry any explosives. She 
did carry some 18 fuse cases and 126 
shrapnel cases', consisting merely of 
empty sheila without any powder 
charge, 4,200 cases of safety cartrid- 
ges and 189 cases of Infantry equip- 
ment; such leather fittings, pouches 
and the like. All these were for 
delivery abroad, but none of these 
munitions could be exploded by sett- 
ing them on Are In mass or in bulk, 
nor by subjecting them to Impact. 
She had been duly Inspected on 
March 17, April 15. 16 and 17, all In 
1916, and before she left New Tork, 
the boat gear and boats were ex- 
amined, overhauled, checked up and 
defective articles properly replaced. 

"There Is no reason to doubt that 
this part of her equipment was In 
excellent order when she left New 
York. The vessel was under the 
command of a long service and ex- 
perienced captain and officered by 
competent and experienced men. 
The difficulties of the war prevented 
the company from gathering together 
a crew fully reaching a standard as 
high as In normal times (many of 
the younger British sailors having 
been called to the colors), but all told, 
the crew was good and. In many In- 
stances. Jrtghly Intelligent and 

Dally Boat Drills 

"Due precaution was taken In re- 
spect of boat drills while In port, and 
the testimony shows that these drills 
were both sufficient and efficient. 
8*me passengers did not see any boat 
drills on the voyage, while others 
characterised the drills, in effect, as 
formally superficial. Anyone familiar 
with ocean traveling knows that It 
is not strange that boat drills may 
take place unobserved by some of the 
passengers who, though on deck, may 
be otherwise occupied or who may 
be In another part of the ship, and 
such negative testimony must give 
away to the positive testimony that 
there were dally boat drills, the ob- 
ject of which mainly was to enable 
the men competently ahd quickly to 
lower the boats. 

"Each man had a badge showing 
the number of the boat to which he 
was assigned and a boat list was 
posted In three different places In the 
ship. Each day of the voyage a drill 
waa held with the emergency boat, 
which was a fixed boat, either No. 
IS on the starboard side or No. 14 
on the port side, according to the 
weather, the Idea, doubtless, being 
to accustom the men quickly to reach 
the station on either side of the ship. 
The airen was blown and a picked 
crew from the watch assembled at 
the boat, put on lifebelts. Jumped 
Into tbe boat, took their places and 
Jumped out gain. « 

"Throughout this case It must 
always be remembered thst the dis- 
aster occurred In May, 1915, and the 
whole subject must be approached 
with the knowledge and mental at-

tltude of that time. It may be that 
more elaborate and effective methods 
and precautions have been adopted 
since then, but there Is no testimony 
which shows that these boats drills, 
as practised on the voyage, were not 
fully upto the existing standard and 
practices. There can be no criticism 
of the bulkhead door drills, for there 
waa one each day. 

Question or Speed Reduction 

"In November. 1914, the directors 
of the Cunard Company, in view of 
the falling off In passenger traffic. 
decided to withdraw the Lusttanta's 
slater ship. Mauretanla. and to run 
the Lusitania at three-fourths boiler 
power, which Involved a reduction of 
speed from an average of about 24 
knots to an average of about 21 
knots. The ship was operated under 
this reduced boiler power and reduc- 
ed rate of speed for six round trips 
until and includipg the fatal voyage, 
although at the reduced rate she was 
considerably faster than any pas- 
senger ship crossing the Atlantic at 
that time. This reduction was In part 
for financial reasons and In part a 
question of economy of coal and labor 
in time of war.' No profit was ex- 
pected and none was made, but the 
company' continued to operate the 
ship as a public service. The re- 
duction from 24 to 21 knots is, how- 
ever, quite immaterial to the con- 
troversy, as will later appear. 

Passengers and Crew Heroic 

"The conduct of the passengers 
constitutes an enduring record of 
calm heroism with many Instances of 
sacrifice and. In general a marked 
consideration for women and chil- 
dren. There wan no panic. but 
naturally, there was a considerable 
amount of excitement and rush and 
much confusion and, as the Increas- 
ing list rendered Ineffective the low- 
ing of the boats on the port side, 
the passengers, as It readily under- 
standable, crowded over on the star- 
board side. The problem presented 
to the officers of the ship was one of 
exceeding difficulty, occasioned large- 
ly because of the serious list render- 
ing Ineffective the lowering of the 
ship or reducing her headway." 
Continuing, Judge Mayer said: — 

"It Is to be expected that those 
passengers who lost members of their 
family or friends and who saw some 
of the unfortunate accidents should 
feel strongly and entertain the Im- 
pression that Inefficiency or Indivi- 
dual negligence was wide-spread 
among the crew. 8uch an -Jmpres- 
slo'n. however. d<>*> an Inadvertlitt in- 
justice to the great majority of the 
crew, who acted with that matter of 
fact courage a..d fidelity to duty 
which are traditional with men of the 
sea. Such of these men. presumably 
typical of all. as testified In this 
court, were Impressive not only be- 
cause of Inherent bravery but because 
of Intelligence and clear-headedness, 
and they possessed, that remarkable 
gift of simplicity so characteristic of 
truly fearless men who cannot quite 
understand why an ado Is made of 
acts which seem to them merely as, 
of course. In the day's work. 
Captain Not Negligent 

"It will unduly prolong a neces- 
sarily extended opinion to sift the 
voluminous testimony relating to this 
subject of the boats and the conduct 
of the crew and, something Is sought 
to be made of comments of Captain 
Turner, constructed by some to be 
unfavorable but afterwards satisfac- 
torily supplemented and explained, 
but If there were some Instances of 
Incompetency they were very few and 
the charge of negligence In this re- 
gard cannot be successfully main- 

"In arriving at this conclusion.. I 
have not overlooked' the argument 
earneatly pressed that the men were 
not sufficiently Instructed and drilled; 
for I think ths tsstlmony established 
the contrary In the light of conditions 
In May. 1916. I find, therefore, aa a 
fact, that the captain and, hence, the 
petitioner, were not negligent. 

"The Importance of the cause, 
however. Justifies the statement of 
another ground which effectually dis- 
poses of any question of liability. It 
Is an elementary principle of law 
that even If a person la negligent, 
recovery cannot be had unices the 
negligence is the proximate cause of 
the lees or damage. 

"There ' Is another rule, settled by 
ample authority, els.: that even if 
negligence le shown. It cannot be the 
proximate cause of the loss or dam- 
age. If an Independent Illegal act of a 
third party Intervenes to cause the

destined for the Terminal City. The 
insurance and the time wasted by 
many ferry trips, etc.. would more 
than counterbalance the saving which 
the vessel would make in time. The 
Japanese vessels have only a small 
portion of their cargo for Vancouver, 
so ,.iat the trip "there is not worth 

On the other hand, another official 
who should be an authority, believes 
that we will tnke away from the 
States the trade which should come 
to us instead of Seattle and Taconia. 
it is said that at the present time 
freight bound from the Orient to 
Montreal goes to Seattle and then 
across the continent. This gentleman 
says that the freight should b t > landed 
here and then ferried to Vancouver, 
while the steamer goes on to Seattle. 
He says that freight rates are Just as 
cheap on this side of the line as on the 
other, but Seattle has been after the 
business and we have not. 

Which, Way Should City Develop 

This same official goes so far aa to 
prophesy that when the war ends we 
are going to need all the space at the 
piers which have been built at Ogdcn 
Point, and he thinks that the shed 
which will be built on pier 3 will not 
prove by any means adequate. The 
Foundation Company should not have 
the Assembly Plant when the Imper- 
ial Munitions Board is through with 
It, he says, but the machinery should 
be taken out and the shed put into 
shape for the huge shipping business 
he thinks we can get if we go after it 

Shipbuilding he classes as a Hash in 
the pan, an industry good for only a 
few years. • Wooden ships, he declares 
will not be wanted In a Bhort time. 

These are the ideas gathered from 
conversation with men who should 
know and who are Interested. It has 
been suggested that some organisation 
•thoroughly investigate the resources 
and possibilities of this port and of 
the Island then to decide along what 
lines Victoria should develop — 
whether she should become a wonder- 
ful tourist resort or whether she 
should strive for industrial and- sea- 
port supremacy.

Lack of Shipping Owing to 
Submarine • Depredations 
x Hurts Industry in This 

VANCOUVER, B. C. Sept. 14.— 
Vancouver haa particular reason to 
strafe the German for one of her pet^ 
industries, the lumber business, la 
seriously affected by the depreda- 
tions of the aubmarlne. Andrew 
Alexander, In charge of foreign 
lumber shipments at the Hastings 
Mill, aald today that many orders 
from various parts of the world re- 
mained unfilled on this account. 

An Instance of how every available 
bottom Is being pressed Into use Is 
shown by the fact that one of two 
"wlndjamers" loading at the mill for 
South Africa la a converted barge. 
She Is the barkentlne St. James, of 
San Francisco, and First Mate Peter- 
son stated that her owners were 
turning out thirteen more sailing 
vessels to augment the fleet of twelve 
sailing shlpw already in service. 

The vessel, together with the four- 
masted Iron bark Marleohen. loading 
beside her, will sot^n leave on a Jour- 
ney that will require four months 
steady sailing. They are being load- 
ed with planks and square timbers. 
The St. James lakes a load of 1,- 
400,000 feet, the larger vessel tilling

Men In I'urtlund Yards Claim Tliey 
Arc Untitled to Saturday Half- 
Holiday In September. 

PORTLAND. Sept. 14.— About 75 
per cent of the members of the Boil- 
ermakers' and Iron Shipbuilders' 
Union employed in local yards, again 
laid down thel rtoola at noon today 
and declared a half-holiday. In line 
with their protest laMt week against 
the delay in the Hitting of the Fed- 
eral Shipbuilding Labor Adjustment 
Board in Washington. Several thou- 
sand shipbuilders refused to work 
both last Saturday and today, de- 
spite advices from Washington that 
their action was considered a viola- 
tion of their agreement. 

The men who walked out declare 
that Seattle members of the union 
hfltd an agreement for a half-holiday 
on Saturdays throughout September, 
and claimed they were entitled to the 
same treatment. 




Some time during the coming week 
It is expected that the construction of ^' 
a Bhed on Pier 3 at Ogdf»n Point will 
be under way. Mr. Robert Moncrieff, 
to whom the contract was awarded 
some time ago. Is getting ready to pro- 
ceed with the work. The building is 
to be 200 feet by 200 feet and of the 
same construction as the building on 
pier 2. now being used by the Assem- 
bly Plant. It will be completed In 
about six months. 

A track will be laid along both 
sides of the pier right to the end, and 
a depressed track will go down the 
centre of the shed, so that the floor of 
the cars will be on the same level as 
the floor Of the building. The con- 
tract also calls for a planked road 
from the Assembly Plant road tospier 
3 and right around the shed. 

The trackage system will allow 
cars to be run from a ferry entering 
the slip now in use near pier 3 to the 
shed and there loaded with the cargo 
discharged from the ocean vessels, or 
to bring from the Mainland freight to 
be loaded here. 

I'ier l Is yet to be built against the 
inside of the breakwater, while pier 4 
Is planned to to between pier 3 and 
the present Outer Docks. These two 
docks will not be required yet, how- 
ever, and will not be started until 

The ferry slip will have to be re- 
moved when pier 4 Is built, but It 
looks as though the slip will be al- x 
lowed to remain until it wears out. 

At the present time the Japanese 
boats call here on their way from the 
Orient, and then go on to Seattle after 
discharging their Mainland freight at 
Victoria. This freight Is then taken

18,000 Yards Cretonnes in 400 Different 
Designs, Priced From 29c to $3.75 a Yard 

— We believe that this is the 
biggest stock of Cretonnes 
ever carried in Victoria by any 
one store at one time. It's a 
tremendous stock — the magni- 
tude of it can only be realized 
as one passes through the re- 
serve stock room, and ex- 
amines bolt after bolt, and pile 
after pile. But why such a big 
stock? The. reason is obvious. Cretonnes, like other cotton goods, are advancing in cost — in 
many cases to a prohibitive price — so, we took an early opportunity to safeguard our and youf 
future needs and bought heavily. We believe also that Victoria is on the eve of a great 
industrial expansion, and that one of the things bound to follow, will be the better and brighter 
furnishing and draping of the home. Therefore, whatever the need or the demand made upon 
lift for draperies, we are in the happy and unique position to satisfy all. 

' ir new stock comprises the best and most reliable makes from the English and American 

" the very latest novelty designs and colorings are represented, beside the more
